With three quarterbacks on the roster, and another one possibly coming through the draft, there’s no time to waste for QB Aaron Corp. And the Buffalo Bills rookie knows it.
Corp was a guest Wednesday night on The John Murphy Show. And he says despite the fact that the Bills current voluntary offseason conditioning program does not include any football drills, he’s using these workouts to try to win a job this fall.
“I’m in compete mode right now—in the weight room, when I’m running, trying to figure out the playbook the best I can,” Corp said. “It’s not necessarily on the field, but in my mind I’m already competing.”
Aaron Corp was signed as an undrafted rookie free agent by the Bills in the spring of 2012. But he was released before the team went to training camp last summer. He spent the last year working at his high school, Villa Park in Orange County, California, helping with their football team. He also got to work out with four or five other NFL teams, but he didn’t get an offer.
And then the Bills contacted him again, in January of this yearl, to set up a workout with Offensive Coordinator Nathaniel Hackett.
“I was a little bit surprised,” Corp told host John Murphy. “I worked out for a couple of different teams last year and obviously didn’t get picked up. In January, they called me, kind of out of the blue, and set up the workout for February. Apparently I performed decently enough for them to give me an opportunity.”
That opportunity is here, with the Bills veterans in town for conditioning and weight work, and some time in the classroom with the new coaching staff. Corp is determined to make the most of it.
“The way I look at it, if they’re going to keep calling me and giving me opportunities, I may as well keep giving the NFL a shot.”
