This one straddles both leagues, so I put it here. The NFL 53-man roster deadline has passed, and the list of final cuts is trickling in now:[url=http://forums.cfl.ca/posting.php?mode=post&f=1]posting.php?mode=post&f=1[/url]
Credit to Tecmo for unearthing the above thread thanks again. :thup: Even so the data are coming in faster via http://www.gridironfans.com I have noticed though the format is not clean like on the NFL site.
If you are like me cheering for the underdog to make it wherever they go amidst this era of unprecedented media hype all to often about the wrong "hot prospects," "hot rookies," and the likes of BRETT FAVRE! and T.O! (i.e. did you hear that Black was one of T.O.'s cousins last night more than once! :x) and too many draft busts, well here you go you might enjoy this post too.
Please add to it for any I missed who were cut in the last ~24 hours or made teams, and for the CIS or NCAA guys if you went to school with any of them, are an alumnus, a local CIS or NCAA regular fan, or know them I hope you get the chance to congratulate them too when we find out for sure.
It's a bit early and the list is not official for some of these names not listed on the above sites (yet?), so a few names might change if the data come in later tonight to correct the NFL site or if some of these guys are reclaimed well into Monday by other teams for actual roster spots via trades and so forth.
As offseason armchair GM, here is a starting list I have so far including amongst the NCAA undrafted guys I had my eye on back in April.
These guys all have managed either to make teams or be cut right after the last NFL pre-season game, just missing the roster, such that perhaps they are likely to be claimed on another team if not for practise squads.
I'd rather see any of the latter myself just go to the CFL for that matter to get better experience as actual players if they can make that cut if not make a great career out of it instead of waiting around will all the other practise squad guys and hardly ever seeing playing time for their position in the NFL like all too many of them it seems.
