Buffalo Bills make big mistake, waive WR Da’Rick Rogers
As the Buffalo Bills began making their first round of roster cuts, they made a colossal mistake when they waived undrafted rookie wide receiver Da’Rick Rogers.
An über-talented pass-catcher with an attitude problem, Rogers has the type of skill set that translates to dominant receiver play in the NFL. Unfortunately, issues both on and off the field have kept him from unlocking his true potential. From drug use to taunting teammates on the practice field, Rogers has been a mixed bag throughout his football career.
Apparently, no-nonsense head coach Doug Marrone wasn’t willing to put up with his antics.
Despite the obvious obstacles, the Bills should have had more patience with Rogers. Especially considering their lack of reliable depth at wide receiver, a promising young talent like the Tennessee Tech product should have been worth the risk. Instead, the Bills left themselves with players such as Brandon Kaufman and Chris Hogan to battle for the slots on the backend of the depth chart.
One point worth noting: the Bills don’t necessarily have the time to wait for a project like Rogers to develop. With a plethora of young receivers already on the roster, they need immediate production instead of a raw talent who might eat up a roster spot without offering much contribution.
Even if he goes unclaimed, expect Rogers to get scooped up quickly by some receiver-needy team. He might be a character concern, but his elite physical tools make him well worth the risk as a project with immense upside.
We haven’t heard the last of Rogers. Stay tuned.
