It was when the Pittsburgh Steelers brought in Jacoby Jones in 2015 which spelled the demise of former 3rd round draft pick Dri Archer. Archer was released by Pittsburgh, and after sitting on the waiver wire for a week or so, the New York Jets claimed Archer towards the end of the 2015 season.
Archer didn't stick with the Jets long, as he was waived by the team recently, and on Tuesday evening he was claimed off waivers by the Buffalo Bills.

The move is the latest for Archer which has him moving further north on the map. Ironically, many fans constantly suggested Archer's game was more suited for the Canadian Football League, and if he continues on his northern ascent, he might be there before long.
Archer has the speed to play at any level, but his size proved to be too much of a detriment to overlook as he was unable to break tackles, or avoid would-be tacklers, while in Pittsburgh. The Jets must have seen the same thing, and you have to wonder if his chance with the Bills is his last in the NFL.
