Blazer rookies still on NFL rosters (updated with cuts, signings)
We had 13 UAB players sign free-agent contracts and get invited to NFL mini-camps this past spring, but at this point I can think of five who are still on rosters:

Anthony Rush - Philadelphia
Stacy Keely - Minnesota
Jamell Garcia-Williams - San Francisco
Tre Crawford - Atlanta
Xavier Ubosi - Tampa Bay

Anyone know of any other Blazers from last year's team who are still hanging around? I wouldn't be surprised if a few of the guys who got cut get signed again when things start shaking out in camp.

I am not counting the five players from previous UAB teams who are still on rosters: Joe Webb, Chris Hubbard, J.J. Nelson, Darious Williams and Ty Long.

(This post will be updated at the bottom of the thread when players are cut and/or signed.)

He is not included on their roster, though that doesn't necessarily mean he is no longer on the team. Do you have info to the contrary?

This AL.com article lists 14 former UAB players on NFL rosters heading into camp.

https://www.al.com/sports/g66l-2019/07/4...sters.html

That includes Jordan Howard, Roland Milligan, Gerald Everett, and Victor Salako, all who finished elsewhere after the shutdown, as well the five rookies, and Webb, Nelson, Hubbard, Long and Williams.

Ubosi and Rush have been cut, which gets us down to twelve total former Blazers still on NFL rosters, and three players from last year's team (Crawford, Keely and Garcia-Williams)

Yeah, The Eagles probably have the deepest DT depth chart in the NFL, that was always going to be a hard team for him to make.

Any chance Ty Long can make the Chargers roster or has he somewhat already made it?

I know he's not a rookie exactly, but this is his next shot at the NFL.

They only list Ty as a punter/FG kicker, not for kick-offs.

Badgley (the incumbent is listed KO/FG and he was 27/28 on FGs last year, with the only miss being over 50 yards.

The other punter candidate is an undrafted FA, as Matt said, who is also a holder.
