Nickell Robey's weekly message: 'This is what y'all missed out on'


That chip on Nickell Robey's shoulder probably isn't going away any
time soon.

The lone undrafted rookie to play for the Buffalo Bills on
opening day recorded his first NFL interception Sunday and returned it
for a touchdown against Miami Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill.

Robey doesn't sound like a guy who'll be content
with that, not after the entire league passed him over in the draft because he supposedly was too small to play cornerback.

"It's all about sending a message," Robey told me
Thursday at his locker. "Every game I want to show, 'This is what y'all
missed out on. I'm here, and I'm here to stay.' "
