NFL Wolverines: Who made the cut?
Several former Michigan Men made NFL teams again this year, but there were a few surprise cuts. Here's a list of those who made it along with some notes
Starting with the practice squad Wolverines:
Those who were released during or after camp and have not been signed by anyone else (at least yet): WR Roy Roundtree (Cincinnati), OG Elliott Mealer (New Orleans), WR Steve Breaston (New Orleans), OL David Molk and Steve Schilling (San Diego), P Zoltan Mesko (New England), WR Braylon Edwards (New York Jets).
Molk was a surprise, once considered the heir apparent at center for the Chargers. Breaston has had knee problems which have limited him since his 1,000-yard season in Arizona, while Mesko is expected to latch on with another team (this was considered a 'money move' by some).
In other notes, former Wolverine and UMass RB transfer Michael Cox made the New York Giants' 53-man roster.
