Here is his profile on NFL.com

doesn't seem to be one of those practice squad guys, but a true FB that can catch the ball out of the backfield and be used in special teams.

Former 4th round pick who lost his job due to off the field issues, not on the field production.  Couldn't stick on the Dolphins though, who seem to look for more athletic FB's than what Rodriguez provides.

This may be his last chance in the NFL after two arrests stemming from alcohol related incidents.  DUI and disorderly conduct.

I don't see the Bills dropping Summers though since this guy is no guarantee to not screw up again.

I thought I saw that Marrone said he could also play TE. I'll see if I can find the link but maybe Doug is sick of watching stone hands Chandler drop pass's!

Buffalo is a great place for someone with alcohol problems to get his act together :wallbash:

Unless Utah gets an NFL franchise, then there is no "great place". :rolleyes:

this guy thinks he is the second coming of Aaron Hernandez.  there were several rumors concerning his posse here in Chicago.  I think this is a desperation move for whatever reason.

Saw some college video of him -- looked like he was mostly blocking TE in college.  Would like to see just about anyone take Chandler's spot at this point.

I wonder if this is about them wanting to use more I-formation. I find myself saying as much to the TV every time they line up in Shotgun on 3rd and 1.
