The offseason status of NFL players with Utah ties

Published: Sunday, June 1 2014 7:54 p.m. MDT

With organized team activities in full swing for NFL teams around the league, 66 players with Utah ties are trying to make impressions.

As of May 31, the University of Utah leads local teams with 30 players on NFL rosters. Utah State is next with 17, while BYU has 11. Also, Weber State has one, Southern Utah has one and six others played high school ball in Utah and collegiately out of state.

This also includes 21 rookies, six of whom were selected in this year's NFL draft May 8-10 and the others signed as undrafted free agents.

Nine other local players are also aiming to return to a roster, as they currently are free agents.

Here's a look at each of these players and their current situations:

Can't wait for the season to start!

The BYU tandem in Detroit could be spectacular.
Hope that Brad Sorensen gets some good playing time and makes the thunderbirds proud.

But most excited to see how Alex and the Chiefs do this year.

Also amazing how the Dolphins love the Utah products.

What ever happened to Matt Reynolds? Didn't he sign with someone last year?

The Dolphins have been loading up on ute players and for the last decade or so (especially on defense) and have been a bottom feeder team during that span. I guess hand-timed 40 results aren't everything.

Did you forget Cody Hoffman, or did I miss him in your list?

Most would agree that the Dolphin's defense hasn't been the side of the ball to blame. But whatever, continue forward with the hate if you'd like.
