The Buffalo Bills have reportedly nabbed one of the higher-profile undrafted free agents on the market.
According to a tweet from Mike Garafolo of USA Today, the Bills have signed former Tennessee wide receiver Da'Rick Rogers.

Rogers has ideal size (6-foot-2, 217 pounds) and speed (4.44 40 time), but comes with significant baggage. He was kicked out of Tennesseee after failing multiple drug tests. He played last season at Tennessee Tech, where he had 78 receptions for 1,207 yards and 11 touchdowns.
"Tremendous talent. He has great body control and a lot of strength in his body and really strong hands," Bills director of college scouting Chuck Cook said last week at the team's pre-draft luncheon. "We've been tracking him and doing our due diligence with his intangibles."
Rogers was a second-team All-SEC selection with the volunteers in 2011 when he had 67 catches for 1,040 yards and nine touchdowns. ESPN ranked Rogers as the best available undrafted free agent receiver.
