10:52 AM ET 07.27 | Da'Rick Rogers was a very talented wide receiver prospect in the 2013 NFL Draft class, but he fell undrafted due to some serious character issues. After the seven rounds wrapped up, the Bills and head coach Doug Marrone reached out to the 22-year-old receiver to give him one shot at showing what he can offer. So far, so good. According to reports, Rogers is a "clear cut favorite" to land on the team???s 53-man roster. That could be bad news for veteran Brad Smith and others like Chris Hogan and Marcus Easley who will be competing for the final wide receiver spot on the roster.

Character issues, undrafted, signs with Bills, MIGHT make the roster.

Do you want fries with that?

All I can find on the guy is he failed three drug tests and once beat up an off duty police officer outside a bar. Hardly the kind of stuff that would make a guy with his pre draft status fall out of the draft completely. Must be more, his crimes were are not even top twenty for a draft class.

And - to top all of this off...

@buffalobills: #Bills have released OL Chris Scott, per coach Doug Marrone.




Oh the humanity!

Bush league for the NFL, he's going to have to step up the felon game a bit.

Ah, here comes the days of hopefuls getting cut. Here's hoping they all don't have liberal arts degrees or the unemployment rate will skyrocket.

Can't wait to tell my sister and her husband that go to Bills games. The look on their faces whenever I say the word " bills" is priceless.
