As the Buffalo Bills work on trimming their roster down to 75 players, the Bills’ official website announced the release of the following five players Monday: wide receiver Da’Rick Rogers, defensive back Dominique Ellis, cornerback Jumal Rolle, wide receiver DeMarco Sampson and center Ryan Turnley.

The headlining name among the cuts is Rogers. While few deny Rogers’ talent, the wide receiver went undrafted in the 2013 NFL Draft. When the Bills signed Rogers, many thought the team had found a diamond in the rough. At training camp, Rogers flashed his ability from time to time. However, head coach Doug Marrone noted last week that Rogers simply did not show consistency at camp.

Revamp. If there’s one word that I would use to describe the difference in the Buffalo Bills’ wide receiver roster from 2012 to 2013, it would be revamp. The Bills said goodbye to three of their receivers from last season’s roster (Donald Jones, David Nelson and Ruvell Martin). When the team makes its final cuts, I expect there to be at least one more wide receiver added to the “goodbye” list.

This offseason, the Bills decided against tendering both Donald Jones and David Nelson, with Nelson coming off of a torn ACL. The Bills made it apparent that they were going to add wide receivers to their roster via free agency or the NFL draft.

Free agency came and went and no wide receivers were added, but they addressed the position in the draft. The Bills selected USC’s Robert Woods in Round 2 and Texas’ Marquise Goodwin in Round 3. The Bills also numerous wide receivers as undrafted free agents, including troubled but talented wide receiver Da’Rick Rogers.

On paper, the Bills took an area of weakness at wide receiver and turned it into one of strength. Expectations will be high for Stevie Johnson and his company among the Bills’ receiving corps in 2013.
