The writing looked as though it was already on the wall, but on Tuesday the Bills parted ways with third-year cornerback Justin Rogers.

Buffalo’s former seventh-round pick in 2011, Rogers struggled when pressed into a starting role earlier this season at boundary cornerback against the Jets in a 28-20 loss back in Week 3. The reserve cornerback appeared in the first five games of the season, but as the injury-riddled secondary got healthier, Rogers playing time disappeared.

The Richmond product was inactive for each of the Bills’ last six games before he was released.

In his two-plus seasons with Buffalo, Rogers appeared in 34 games, compiled 76 tackles and three interceptions. He also served as a reserve punt and kick returner.
