Hey, Blaze, or DN Sports Editors, you might want to double check your work. The title of this article is "Cougars in the NFL: See the BYU alumni playing at the highest level." I'm not aware of many of my Cougs "playing" in the NFL, so was surprised to see that roughly half of the players listed "play" for the same team: Free Agent! Your article says "here are the players that BYU says are in the NFL." You might want to do your own independent research and simply google who BYU gave you to find out half of who you listed having nothing to do with the NFL ... other than playing for the same Free Agent Team! This was a laughable list.


I appreciate the excellent statistics of the former Cougars who are now playing at the highest level, the NFL. Thanks for a good read.

I enjoyed the video clips! Even with all the free agents, it is amazing to see where these former BYU players ended up!
