NFL roster cuts 2013: Da'Rick Rogers, four others released by Buffalo Bills

Kevin Hoffman-USA TODAY Sports

Bills fans were high on Da'Rick Rogers, but an up-and-down summer led to his release prior to the team's final preseason game of the year.

The Buffalo Bills on Monday announced the release of five players, their first round of cuts in an effort to meet the NFL's 75-man roster maximum by Tuesday afternoon's deadline. Among the first round of cuts: popular undrafted free agent wide receiver Da'Rick Rogers.

Former Bills GM Buddy Nix famously told reporters that the Bills had an early-round grade on Rogers' physical talents entering the 2013 NFL Draft process, but the former Tennessee star went undrafted due to off-field issues. Those apparently continued to plague Rogers in camp this summer, as he was remarkably inconsistent, in and out of the coaching staff's doghouse and saw a rapid decline in his playing time as a result. He did not play at all on offense in Saturday's loss to Washington.

The Bills also released wide receiver DeMarco Sampson, center Ryan Turnley, cornerback Jumal Rolle and safety Dominique Ellis on Monday.
