Former Calhoun high school star Da'Rick Rogers is getting his first taste of the NFL. He participated in the Buffalo Bills rookie minicamp over the weekend.
It has been a rough road to the NFL for the former Vols receiver. He was kicked off the Tennessee football team right before his junior season. He decided to turn pro after finishing his junior year at Tennessee Tech. But then no one took Rogers in the draft. He signed with the Bills as an undrafted free agent.

Said Rogers,"It hurts. It's embarrassing. Like I said, it just makes the chip on my shoulder that much bigger. There are a lot of doubters and a lot of haters out there. I'm here, not to prove them wrong, but to show who I am, and what I'm really about. It has been a long, long, long ride for me as far as personal growth and everything. I'm just glad to be here. Coaches are pushing us young guys to get better. We've got (quarterback) E.J. Manuel out there looking good. I feel good right now. I'm excited."

"... doubters and haters...", lmao. "Doubters"... gee, I wonder why? "Haters"... there's that little en vogue word again, frequently used by a self-centered, narcissistic jerk when the majority doesn't see things his/her little way. This dummy was givens several chances at Tennessee and let everyone down... then just couldn't wait one more year for 'da big money' in order to further prove himself (for a change) in college. When you have no character whatsoever, you frequently end up in an hurt, embarrassed state (and/or become a lawyer, CEO, or politician). If this guy even makes a team, he probably won't last one season before getting booted. He's got to be the most annoying guy to have played for UT since Kelly ('Jelly') Washington.
