His last two seasons have ended prematurely on injured reserve, but fully healthy now, Roscoe Parrish hopes to be back with the Bills in 2012.
Parrish, who is set to become a free agent at the end of the season, wants to re-sign with the club that made him a second-round draft choice in 2005.
“Yeah I would love to be back here,” he said. ”I’ve been with this team my whole career. Most definitely I’d love to be back here. I just want to play football and get the opportunity again. Seize the moment and take advantage of it.”
Parrish is back in town running agility drills and working out in the team’s weight room. He’s expecting to be medically cleared within a week and knows the importance of heading into the offseason healthy.
“You don’t want to think about the negative things, you just want to think about the positive,” he said. ”The good thing about it is I’ll be cleared before the season is over. Today I ran agility drills and ran some routes pretty good. I’m just trying to get back in shape now.
“You break the film down and you can see my return skills and what I can do in the slot. So I can bring that to a team. It’s been unfortunate with the injuries, but it’s up to them. We’ll see what they’re going to do. On my end I have to continue to work out and build my base and get back in shape.”
