Buffalo Bills head coach Doug Marrone scolded WR Da'Rick Rogers in practice Friday, June 31, after the rookie wideout taunted CB Ron Brooks after beating him on a 15-yard reception. Rogers stood above Brooks for a moment after the defender had fallen to the ground.
"The thing that concerned me - and I addressed it with him right after he made a very good catch, then he kind of stood there over a player, and that's a 15-yard penalty - that's not what being a pro is, and that's not playing like a Buffalo Bill," Marrone said.
"I told him, 'Is this going to be something we're going to have to be concerned about with handling any type of success from you?' That's what I told him. I looked at him in his eye, and he understood that. And it's good to end on a good note cuz now you're excited to see what he can do when we come back to the mandatory minicamps."
Fantasy Tip: Rogers already was on a short leash. He has a tremendous amount of talent and could earn a meaningful role in the offense, should he keep his head on straight.

Buffalo Bills head coach Doug Marrone said the team can play up-tempo offense or slow the offense down depending on the situation. "The thing I want to make sure everyone understands is we do have the ability to huddle and the ability to slow the game down if we wanted to. If we're ahead on the scoreboard and we're in a four-minute situation and you want to slow the game down, we have the ability to do that. We practice both right now and that will continue in terms of tempo. I like playing fast. I think you have a great advantage with that," Marrone said. Marrone said the up-tempo style will allow the team to earn more possessions during games.

Buffalo Bills head coach Doug Marrone said the addition of QB Kevin Kolb does not mean the team will not look at quarterback prospects in the NFL Draft. "I do not think it really is going to change the philosophy on the draft," Marrone said. "I think that when the position comes whatever is best for our team to get better I think we will go ahead and choose that player whoever it may be. I think that rather than trying to, and I do not want to speak for Buddy (Nix) or anyone else in the organization, rather than trying to reach or go somewhere that you do not want to go you bring the best players you can bring in and you make those guys compete. You are a better football team."

Free-agent TE Fred Davis (Redskins), who is going to visit the Buffalo Bills Thursday, March 28, said he was impressed with head coach Doug Marrone after having dinner with him last week. "I think when you meet him, just talking to him, he seems like a player's coach, down to earth and real and that's something with a lot of coaches you don't get a chance to see," Davis said. "He was really cool and all the things he talked about you can tell he's a humble guy that doesn't make choices because of money. It's more about what he wants to do in life."
