Bills DT Marcell Dareus wants to earn team's and fans' trust after troubled offseason

Buffalo Bills defensive tackle Marcell Dareus is back at training camp and wants to earn the trust of his teammates, coaches and fans after a troubled offseason.

In a statement released by the team Wednesday, Dareus says he has a passion for football, but acknowledges he has "things to work on professionally and personally."

Dareus returned to camp in suburban Rochester on Tuesday, a day after attending a court hearing in Alabama. He agreed to enter an NFL substance abuse program to have two felony drug charges dismissed.

Dareus also faces a reckless driving charge after crashing his Jaguar into a tree outside of Buffalo in late May.

He reported to camp out of shape and must first pass a conditioning test before being cleared for practice.
