Holland spent time with the Denver Broncos last season, dressing for three games. He was waived by the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday.

As for Carter, he suffered a season ending knee injury during the preseason last year, and dealt with injuries again in recent weeks. His release means that Corey Bojorquez is the lone punter on the current roster.

Does that mean he'll be the Bills' punter on opening day? He hasn't quite been good enough to assume that:

Just because the Bills released Cory Carter and Corey Bojorquez is the only punter on the team doesn't mean he's the punter on opening day. I'm not convinced they don't claim someone next week after cuts, just as they did Bojorquez last year.

One punter that is on the market is long time New England Patriots punter Ryan Allen. The 29-year-old was busy this past year in Super Bowl LIII, punting five times for 215 yards and pinning the Los Angeles Rams inside the 10-yeard line on three separate occasions.
