Kim Zolciak’s husband, Kroy Biermann, was cut from the Buffalo Bills just weeks after he signed with the team, BuffaloBills.com confirmed Friday, September 2.

According to the website, the team’s head coach, Rex Ryan, had to cut the roster of players down from 75 to 53. Biermann, 30, was among the 22 men asked to leave.

As previously reported, the NFL star — who had previously played with the Atlanta Falcons for eight seasons — signed a contract with the Buffalo Bills Tuesday, August 16. The team confirmed his new position as an outside linebacker via Twitter.

“We've officially signed LB Kroy Biermann,” the sports organization wrote from its official Twitter account at the time. “Welcome @biermann71!”

That same day, Biermann expressed his delight in getting the chance to play with a new group of guys this fall. “So excited to become part of the Buffalo Bills family we can already feel the amazing energy,” he tweeted. “#GoBills.”

His reality TV star wife, 38 — with whom he stars on Bravo’s Don’t Be Tardy penned an emotional note on Instagram after learning of his new gig in upstate New York, miles away from their home in Atlanta.

"Although Kroy is so excited as I am (my parents grew up there, half my family still lives there) never mind the fact the fans are AWESOME, the team is AWESOME and my hubby is ecstatic … It was hard to say good bye!" she admitted of having to bid farewell to her hubby. "Im so thankful for @briellebiermann taking Kroy so early this morning, @cheftraceybloom coming to the rescue to be here for me, @nikitpressley texts and ALL of you who have welcomed my husband with open arms! THANK YOU. #HeIsMyCalm #HeIsMyStrength #HeIsEveryThingAManHusband&FatherShouldBe."

Likely disappointed by the cut, the “Google Me” songstress will surely enjoy having him home. Back in May, she took to Instagram to express how much Biermann means to her.

"6 years ago today I met the LOVE of my LIFE!" she shared. "My heart, my best friend, my babies daddy! I love you with all I have @kroybiermann and I'm so glad you chose me…"

Zolciak and Biermann share sons KJ, 5, Kash, 4, and 2-year-old twins Kane and Kaia. The Kashmere Kollections founder is also the mom of Brielle, 19, and Ariana, 14, from a previous relationship. Biermann officially adopted the teens in July 2013.
