BUFFALO, N.Y. — Passed over in the NFL draft, Tennessee Tech receiver Da’Rick Rogers can finally begin putting his troubled college career behind him after agreeing to sign with the Buffalo Bills.
Rogers’ agent Joby Branion, on Sunday, confirmed his client agreed to terms with the Bills. The player announced the news a day earlier by writing, “I’m a Buffalo Bill,” on his Twitter account.
He becomes the latest play-making addition to what is becoming a young, retooled offense under rookie head coach Doug Marrone.
The Bills opened the draft by selecting Florida State quarterback EJ Manuel with the 16th pick. They then selected two more receivers: Southern California’s Robert Woods (41st overall) and Texas speedster Marquise Goodwin (78th).
Aside from Rogers, the Bills also reached deals with two more undrafted rookie free agents. Washington State quarterback Jeff Tuel and Eastern Washington receiver Brandon Kaufman agreed to sign with Buffalo, the players’ agent, Cameron Foster, said.
