Bills bring in 30 players for weekend tryout

Posted May 1, 2009

The opportunity is limited, but it’s one that most NFL hopefuls don’t pass up. The Bills invited 30 free agent players in for a three-day weekend tryout. The prospects will practice with Buffalo’s new draft class, 2008 practice squad players and undrafted rookie free agents that were signed this week.

The most interesting name on the list is Florida State wide receiver De’cody Fagg. Fagg was expected to be drafted as a member of the 2008 class, but he suffered a knee injury during his combine workout over a year ago and has spent the past year rehabilitating his knee after having the ligaments repaired.

The knock on Fagg last year was that he had durability issues with several injuries during his college career. It will be interesting to witness if he’s all the way back from the serious knee injury.

Here’s the list of tryout players.
