Da’Rick Rogers came to the Buffalo Bills as an undrafted free agent, and the Bills were not the only team that was pursuing his talents on the field. The Buffalo Bills landed him while there were 14 others teams interested in the former Tennessee Tech receiver.
Da’Rick Rogers is also not stranger to having problems off the field as well. While being a Tennessee Volunteer, Rogers was dismissed after his Sophomore season for drug issues and filed drug tests. So far this has not been the case for the Tennessee wide receiver, but he has already gotten an ear full from Doug Marrone.
Rogers made a 15 yard catch, in Fridays practice, and proceeded to stand over Ron Brooks, the CB on the play in a manner that could be construed as taunting, which in the NFL will draw a penalty. The caught Marrone’s eye and in turn Rogers received his ear full.
“I told him, ‘Is this going to be something we’re going to have to be concerned about with handling any type of success from you?’ That’s what I told him,” Marrone said, via Mark Gaughan of the Buffalo News. “I looked at him in his eye, and he understood that. And it’s good to end on a good note cuz now you’re excited to see what he can do when we come back to the mandatory minicamps.”
This type of issue is one that is not serious enough to dismiss him form the team, at least at this point but if there is a close contest between him and another player and 1 spot left to decide from then this might come into play.
