There were four players with CFL backgrounds who worked out for the Buffalo Bills on Friday.
Receiver DaVaris Daniels and defensive backs Jonathon Mincy, Kacy Rodgers and Jonathan Rose.
Daniels, the 2016 Most Outstanding Rookie, was slowed by injury in 2017. He burst onto the scene a year ago showing deep threat ability and that flashed in his first full season with Calgary. Over 13 games in 2017, Daniels made 47 receptions for 743 yards and four touchdowns.
Mincy played boundary corner for Montreal in 2017 where many of the best wide outs in the CFL line up each week. He was targeted 6.2 times per game in 2017 and he allowed a 64 per cent completion rate and 42.3 yards per game, leading the league in those categories (statistics via Onside CFL Fantasy host Dave Dawson).
Rodgers emerged as a top cover man in the league while making 42 tackles, two forced fumbles and one interception for the Rides in 2017. He’s starting to pile up the NFL workouts which signal improved chances of being offered a contract.
Rose made 108 tackles, three interceptions, two forced fumbles, and one sack in two seasons with Ottawa.
