Bills head coach Rex Ryan takes a shot at Dri Archer who never showed up to OTA’s

Steelers former draft pick Dri Archer is turning down practice squad offers

Dri Archer does not show up to Bills OTA’s and the Bills head coach takes a shot at him

Dri Archer was released by the New York Jets and the Buffalo Bills quickly placed a claim on him.  The Bills were excited to claim the speedster Archer, because of his abilities as a return man and his 4.2 forty speed.  The Bills were expecting Archer to show up but that never happened. Archer was placed on the reserve/did not report list, and that upset the Bills a bit.  When head coach Rex Ryan was asked about the situation, Ryan took a shot at Archer.

“I never even talked to the kid, so we’ll see what happens,” Ryan said, according to Don Banks of Sports Illustrated. “He won’t return a call. Is it him not wanting to be a Bill, or is it something else? I don’t know, but I guess there’s a reason Pittsburgh let him go [last November]. But when you find something out, let us know, because I’ve never even talked to him.”

I have to agree with Rex.  Obviously, Archer is not interested in the NFL, or playing for the Buffalo Bills. I hope Dri Archer has another plan, because it is hard to pass up a job worth 400k dollars a year.
