Jake Fisher has been cut by the Buffalo Bills.

Fisher switched from offensive line to tight end in an attempt to reinvigorate his NFL career, but it didn’t work out with Buffalo. (RELATED: Buffalo Bills Sign T.J. Yeldon To Two-Year Contract)

The team announced Monday that he’d be released.

Fisher is 26 years old and has been in the NFL for several years at this point. Changing positions might work out well in college, but it’s far from an easy thing to do in the NFL.

Given the fact he was a second round pick by the Bengals, I think it’s safe to say things haven’t exactly gone according to plan. (RELATED: The Loudest Player In The NFL Gets Served A Hot Plate Of Karma By QB He Dissed)

Don’t get me wrong. I’m hoping for the best for him. I really am. The man came into the league with a substantial amount of hype, and it just didn’t work out like everybody thought it would.

Now, he’s trying to recreate himself as a tight end after flaming out of Cincinnati and a very brief stint with the Bills.

Again, I wish Fisher nothing but the best, but I’m not holding my breath for him to become a standout tight end. It just doesn’t seem like something likely to happen.

Only time will tell. You never know. The NFL can be a crazy world at times.
