"I'm a Buffalo Bill," he tweeted Saturday night.
Rogers' agent Joby Branion, on Sunday, confirmed his client agreed to terms with Buffalo.
Rogers earned All-SEC honors in 2011 when he had 67 receptions for 1,040 yards and nine touchdowns. But he was suspended by Tennessee last year for a violation of team rules and transferred to Tennessee Tech four days later.
At a news conference in 2012, he said his suspension by the Volunteers was for "a couple of drug tests, yes sir." He said it was him "being a young, immature guy. Those are things that I've got to work on and I plan to work on."
Rogers caught 61 passes for 893 yards and 10 touchdowns in his lone season at Tennessee Tech. The 6-foot-3, 206-pound receiver caught 18 passes for 303 yards in a 41-38 double-overtime loss to Southeast Missouri State to set school records in both categories.
