The Buffalo Bills announced their 2013 undrafted free agent class today. In getting their roster to the full offseason limit of 90, Buffalo had to release four players that had been under contract. Wide receiver Da'Rick Rogers highlights the class. As Brian Galliford noted earlier today, Rogers could develop into a legitimate threat at wide receiver if he keeps his off-field life in check.

The other headliner is Washington State quarterback Jeff Tuel. Tuel was in for a pre-draft visit and if he impresses could earn the team's third quarterback job behind rookie E.J. Manuel and the winner of the Kevin Kolb/Tarvaris Jackson competition, though head coach Doug Marrone hasn't given any indication that it's an either/or proposition with the two.

Along the offensive line, the team signed Syracuse guard Zack Chibane and Pitt center Ryan Turnley. Both have a shot to stick on the thin interior line. In the trenches on the other side, Georgia Tech defensive end Izaan Cross and Cal defensive tackle Aaron Tipoti add depth.

After drafting two safeties on Saturday, Buffalo added more defensive backs on Monday including another safety - Towson's Jordan Dangerfield. Kip Edwards (Missouri), Vernon Kearney (Lane), Nickell Robey (USC) and Jumal Rolle (Catawba) will duke it out for a back-end roster spot at the thin cornerback position. They also added Howard Bison linebacker Keith Pough.

On offense, Richmond fullback Kendall Gaskins and Albany RB/FB Drew Smith will battle with previous signed tryout fullback Frank Summers for a potential roster spot. Receivers Brandon Kaufman (Eastern Washington) and Kevin Norrell (Stony Brook) join Rogers in the wideout battle.

For full descriptions of each signee, head over to the Buffalo Bills website to hear from the team's scouts. To make room on the roster the Bills released quarterback Aaron Corp, offensive tackle Adam Grant, kicker Chris Koepplin and tight end Joe Sawyer.
