The Buffalo Bills announced they have released cornerback Justin Rogers. Rogers initially started five games for the Bills at corner this year, but his role was continually reduced as the season wore on and he was inactive the past few games.
The Bills ran into injuries early in the year including Stephon Gilmore that caused them to need Rogers. As the season wore on, Rogers was continually picked on by opposing teams and was ultimately replaced as the team got healthier. He had 18 tackles and an interception against the New England Patriots in his season with Buffalo this year.
The 5’11″ 181lb corner is still just 25 years old and is in his third year after being selected in the seventh round of the 2011 NFL Draft from Richmond. The timing of this cut suggest the 4-7 Bills have someone in mind they want to bring in and hope to get acclimated as they are on their bye week and preparing to take on the Atlanta Falcons.
