Buffalo Bills release Alan Branch

The Buffalo Bills have released veteran defensive lineman Alan Branch one day after he was arrested for drunk driving.

The arrest came Saturday in Cheektowaga, where police observed Branch vomiting out the side of his car. The Bills reported that he failed a field sobriety test in addition to registering a blood alcohol level of .14, well over the legal limit of .08. Branch was inactive for Saturday's preseason loss to Tampa Bay.
 An eight-year NFL veteran, Branch signed a three-year contract extension after last season, but reported to training camp out-of-shape and was banished to the second and even third team after failing conditioning tests.
 Branch was a second round pick of the Arizona Cardinals in 2007. He played four years with the Cardinals before spending two seasons with Seattle, signing with the Bills in 2013.
