Vince Young

Once a college football superstar, rookie of the year, comeback player of year, to a Bills camp invite fighting for a backup spot. Vince Young had quite the fall in his once promising career that led him to Bills camp in 2012. Young had some highlights in the preseason action he saw but ultimately failed to complete more than 50% of his passes and was cut after the Bills traded for another once promising QB, Travaris Jackson.

Da’Rick Rogers

A one time five star recruit at Tennessee, turned small school stand out after a failed drug test college. Roger arrived at St. John Fisher with high hopes. So high, some considered  him to a future #1 receiver with his size and speed. Despite a solid camp and some preseason touchdowns, Rogers ended up getting cut. He found his way to Colts, where he did have a one hit wonder game in which he had 107 yards and 2 TDs.

Eric Striker 

If I had told you the Bills signed an All American, pass rush specialist as an undrafted free agent, you would be understandably stoked. That’s what the Bills found in Eric Sticker in 2016. Unfortunately for Striker he was 5’11 and never found his footing in Bills camp and couldn’t latch on with another team.

Anquan Boldin 

The ultimate tease. For three weeks in August of 2017 the Bills had Hall of Fame wide receiver Anquan Boldin. The Bills brought in the veteren to help be a leader in the new McDermott regime. After a couple of preseason games Boldin moved on to things bigger than football. It did appear he wanted to return later in the year to play in New England, but in the ultimate petty move, the Bills blocked the move.
