                    === Bills let go of Barnett, Wilson ===
 
 Orchard  Park,  NY  (Sports  Network)  - The Buffalo Bills have released their
 two top tacklers of 2012, parting ways with linebacker Nick Barnett and safety
 George Wilson on Monday.
 
 After  spending  eight productive seasons  with the Green Bay Packers, Barnett
 came  to the  Bills as a free agent  in 2011 and led the team in tackles while
 playing in every game during both of his two years in Buffalo.
 
 He totaled 242 tackles over his two seasons, registering 112 with two sacks in
 2012.
 
 Wilson,  a defensive co-captain last season, has played with the Bills for the
 entirety of his eight-year career. He trailed only Barnett for most tackles on
 the team last year, amassing 104 while also making five pass deflections.
 
 Before  becoming  a full-time starting  safety in  2008, Wilson played a major
 role on special teams.
 
 In  92  games with Buffalo, he  recorded 412 tackles, 12 interceptions and 3.5
 sacks.
