The Bills have cut the son of a two-time Super Bowl champion for the second time.

The Buffalo Bills have released wide receiver Austin Proehl, who was signed to the practice squad less than two weeks ago.

Proehl is the son of Ricky Proehl, a former NFL wide receiver.

During his 17-year career, the elder Proehl, who won two Super Bowl rings, racked up 54 touchdowns and nearly 9,000 yards while playing for a variety of teams including the Arizona Cardinals, Seattle Seahawks, Chicago Bears, and St. Louis Rams.

The Rams are a team from St. Louis, Missouri.

Proehl’s release by the Bills on Monday was his second.

He joined Buffalo’s practice team on November 2 to replace wide receiver Tanner Gentry, who had been placed on the COVID-19 list.

Proehl, 26, was drafted by Buffalo in 2018, but was released during final cuts.

Proehl was drafted in the 7th round by the Bills out of North Carolina, and he bounced around the league after that.

Proehl spent one day with the Tennessee Titans practice squad and the XFL’s Seattle Dragons before signing with the Los Angeles Rams practice team after accumulating 1,265 yards on 91 receptions in 28 college games.

The San Francisco 49ers signed the 5-foot-10, 185-pound receiver to a reservefuture contract in January 2021, but he was waived on May 17th.

In September, he was signed to the Los Angeles Chargers’ practice squad one day later.

Blake Proehl, Proehl’s brother, is a Minnesota Vikings wide receiver.

Proehl’s younger brother, Blake Proehl, is a wide receiver for the Minnesota Vikings.

Blake was placed on injured reserve just before the start of the 2021 NFL season, which was unfortunate for him.

“During a one-on-one drill early in the joint practice with the Broncos, Proehl’s right knee buckled in a non-contact fashion,” Will Ragatz of Sports Illustrated reported on August 12.

“Trainers rushed to his aid, and he was eventually carted off the field, appearing to be in excruciating pain.”
