With talent comes second chances. Former University of Tennessee wide receiver Da’Rick Rogers couldn’t make the Buffalo Bills roster out of training camp. That may become a blessing-in-disguise now that the Indianapolis Colts have placed him on their practice squad.
From EJ Manuel, Kevin Kolb and the Bills organization to Andrew Luck and the Colts organization? A timely attitude adjustment could work wonders for Rogers’ long-term NFL career. Start behaving and Rogers could have Luck throwing him passes for the next decade.
For Tennessee Titans fans, it’s the second noteworthy roster movement from the Colts. On Sep. 1, the Colts claimed Jack Doyle off waivers. The Titans were hoping to add Doyle to their 53-man practice squad. The Colts decided to add him to their 53-man roster as a No. 4 tight end.
Some Volunteers enthusiasts believe that Rogers has a bright future ahead of him. He just needs to eliminate the attitude that rubbed off poorly on his coaches at UT, Tennessee Tech and possibly Buffalo. His conduct played a vital role in him dropping from at least a Day 2 pick to an undrafted free agent.
How do Titan Sized readers feel about Rogers joining the Colts practice squad? Any concerns that he’ll breakout and become a star? Or will he turn into another nuisance that finds himself unemployed before the end of this season? Discuss in the comments, Twitter or Facebook.
