The Buffalo Bills are releasing cornerback Tre'Davious White, a source told Adam Schefter of ESPN.

Buffalo will designate him as a post-June 1 release, saving $10.2 million against the cap after that date, Schefter adds.

The 29-year-old has been with the Bills since they selected him in the first round of the 2017 NFL Draft. He has only played 10 games over the last two seasons after suffering a torn Achilles in October 2023.

White started 82 games for the club, totaling 68 passes defended and 18 interceptions. He made All-Pro teams in 2019 and 2020.

Buffalo agreed to terms on a renegotiated contract with pass-rusher Von Miller, a source told NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. The new agreement lowers Miller's $17.145-million base salary to $8.5 million next season and creates close to $8.64 million in cap space for the team.

The Bills are also releasing veterans Jordan Poyer, Mitch Morse, and Deonte Harty, the team confirmed Wednesday.

Morse had been with the club since 2019, starting 77 games during that span. Harty joined Buffalo on a two-year deal last offseason after the wide receiver spent the previous four campaigns with the New Orleans Saints.

The Bills plan to move Connor McGovern to center to replace Morse, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network. Guard David Edwards is in line for a starting job after signing a two-year extension Wednesday.

Poyer signed a four-year deal with the Bills in 2017. The safety spent the first four seasons of his career with the Philadelphia Eagles and Cleveland Browns.

The 32-year-old started 16 games last season, totaling 100 tackles and four passes defended in that span. Since joining the Bills, he's been a crucial part of their defense, starting 107 regular-season contests and 11 playoff games.

Safety Micah Hyde is also slated to hit free agency on Monday, meaning Buffalo could be looking for two new starters at the position. Hyde has also been with the team since 2017.

Buffalo will have one familiar face in the secondary in 2024 after re-signing safety Taylor Rapp to a three-year, $14.5-million contract. The 26-year-old was set to become an unrestricted free agent after playing out a one-year pact last season.

The Bills went into Wednesday with the least cap space in the NFL, according to Spotrac.
