PLAYERS: Da'Rick Rogers
TEAMS: Buffalo Bills
Immaturity not only caused Buffalo Bills rookie receiver Da’Rick Rogers to be dismissed from the University of Tennessee before the 2012 season, but it also prevented him from hearing his name called during the 2013 NFL Draft.  Nevertheless, Rogers relishes his opportunity with the Bills and realizes this may be his one chance at success in the NFL. “I cherish it like gold.  This is it,” Rogers said shortly after joining his new teammates in opening the team’s three-day rookie minicamp this weekend.  ”This is my last opportunity.  ”I’ve got to make the best of it.” Photo Credit: BuffaloBills.com Rogers overpowered defenders on his way to second-team All-SEC status with 67 receptions for 1,040 yards and nine scores in 2011 and had similar numbers last year (78 catches for 1,207 yards and 11 TDs).  The big-bodied receiver has strong hands, excels across the middle and is tough-as-nails to bring down after the catch and made a name for himself as hands down one of the most talented rec...

Bills Willing To Give WR Da’Rick Rogers One Last Chance

Buffalo Bills rookie wide receiver Da’Rick Rogers has a similar story to that of Tyrann Mathieu, just with less fan fare.  Rogers entered the University of Tennessee in 2010 as one of the most highly regarded wide receivers coming out of the prep ranks.

Marrone cautious in assessing Bills QB Manuel

Buffalo Bills coach Doug Marrone is keeping his expectations in check when it comes to assessing quarterback EJ Manuel. Marrone wasn't in a position to award Manuel the starting job when the Bills drafted him in the first round out of Florida State two weeks ago. And the coach certainly didn't have a change of heart after keeping a close eye on the quarterback Friday, when...

Buffalo Bills Made Bold Moves in 2013 NFL Draft

No one can accuse the Buffalo Bills of playing it safe in this year’s draft.

The Bills opened the draft with a big trade with St. Louis, trading down and swapping their first and third round picks for the Rams‘...

Doubling as a track star, Goodwin is a speedy yet raw prospect who was drafted in the third round, 78th overall, out of Texas. The Bills also signed fourth-round pick, defensive back Duke Williams; fifth-round pick, defensive...

Admitting the raw rookie needs work on his ‘footwork and mechanics,’ Bills coach Doug Marrone should have E.J. Manuel hold a clipboard this autumn

Noting the raw rookie needs work on his “footwork and mechanics,” Buffalo Bills head coach Doug Marrone seemed to acknowledge E.J. Manuel is nowhere near ready to start as an NFL quarterback. As the 2013 Senior Bowl MVP and a 2012 second team All-ACC selection, Buffalo took the 23-year-old Manuel out of Florida State with the 16th pick in last month’s draft. Although brimming...
