WR Hagan to have role this week

WR Derek Hagan, who was picked up off waivers a couple of weeks back is ready to have a role in Buffalo’s offense down the stretch and is expected to be active today against the Chargers.

“I’m ready to go and I should be going this week against San Diego,” Hagan told

Just how extensive Hagan’s role is remains to be seen, especially in light of how effective Brad Smith has been in the number two wideout spot the past two weeks. Still Hagan has gone out of his way to establish a rapport with Ryan Fitzpatrick.

“It’s been great,” said Hagan. “We’ve spent extra time to get the timing down between one another, me getting used to how his ball comes out when he throws it. So it’s been good and I feel a lot more comfortable now than the first week I was here.”

Hagan has several tickets for Sunday’s game as his immediate family including his parents will be in attendance as they drive the two hours from Palmdale to San Diego. The Northride, CA native actually bought tickets for a San Diego game earlier this season for his family, while he was still with the Raiders for their Nov. 10th game, but that didn’t go so well.

“I got cut just a few days prior to that game,” he said. “This time things should pan out a lot better.”
