Marcell Dareus says Bills organization treated him like 'a nobody'

There was plenty of crowing in the Jacksonville Jaguars' locker room Sunday after their win against the Pittsburgh Steelers. The Jaguars are playing up that they are being slighted and their organization has been treated like a laughingstock.

That takes us to former Bills defensive tackle Marcell Dareus, who was traded to the Jaguars in the days before the trading deadline.

Dareus was among the Jaguars players who said after Sunday's game that there is still room on the bandwagon if the Steelers players wanted to join.

"We came into your house—twice!" Dareus said, according to Bleacher Report. "And when it counted, we came to this b---h and knocked on the door and kicked that b---h down."

Then Dareus talked about his own journey. Dareus said he loved the city of Buffalo, but then offered a sarcastic thank you to Bills coach Sean McDermott for helping him make changes in his life before the trade. (Last week, he said joining the Jaguars helped turn his life around.)

As for the organization, Dareus said, the Bills treated him like "a nobody."

"I'm a (bleeping) All-Pro," Dareus said. "And y'all aren’t even going to let me play? You aren't even going to give me snaps?"

Teammate Malik Jackson interjected, "Tell 'em!"

As for the Jaguars' underdog status, the Patriots opened as an 8.5 point favorite in the AFC Championship Game.

As for Dareus being a "nobody," the Bills signed him to a six-year, $96.6 million extension before the 2015 season.
