After Friday's signing of free agent quarterback Vince Young, the Buffalo Bills entered their rookie mini-camp with 89 players on the active roster, leaving room for one of the weekend's tryout players to potentially snag the final available contract. A tweet from former Pitt tight end Dorin Dickerson indicates that he's that player.

Dickerson was a seventh-round pick of the Houston Texans in the 2010 NFL Draft, but has only appeared in seven games to this point in his career. A very good athlete, the former player for Dave Wannstedt ran a 4.4-second 40-yard dash at 226 pounds at the 2010 NFL Combine; combined with a stellar senior season (49 receptions, 529 yards, 10 touchdowns), Dickerson was an intriguing developmental player entering the league.

Because he's only 6'1", however, the Texans decided to try Dickerson at receiver rather than tight end. He was waived prior to the 2011 season after failing to make a catch in seven appearances as a rookie, and spent last season as an injured member of the Pittsburgh Steelers' practice squad. The big question about his future in Buffalo, for the moment, is which position he'll play when the team assembles for OTAs in two weeks.
