Doesn't look like Braden Brown actually made the roster according to the team website. Joe Kruger was cut but put on IR. Harvey Unga did make the practice squad for the Bears again.

TJ4, Dave was cut by the Browns, Joe was put on IR by the Eagles, he wasn't cut. A team can't cut a guy that is on IR, nor can they put someone on IR who isn't on their roster.

Correction on Reed: he was traded by the Ravens to the Colts, not signed as a free agent.

Also Schlauderaff is entering his 3rd year, not 4th, and Shelby is entering his 2nd, not 3rd. Wow, a lot of fact checking on this article!!

I think we are missing something here. Ask the question "how many returned missionaries does each team have"? Then examine the priorities typical of returned missionaries: family education, and community service etc. etc. Then ask the question "which school produces the most former athletes who are university graduates"? Or even university post-graduates. Sure, the article was a statement of how many are in the NFL from each university. Just saying that there is more to life than an NFL career.

Where do these guys get their info? Sean Smith is not safety, he is their starting RCB opposite Brandon Flowers with Eric Berry at SS and Kendrick Lewis at FS.
