    Updates on Cyclones in the NFL

    Not a good week or so for Cyclones in the NFL. Lots of former ISU'ers were released either today or recently:

    TE Collin Franklin, from Tampa Bay
    OL Hayworth Hicks, from Indianapolis
    QB Seneca Wallace, from Cleveland
    DB David Sims, from Cleveland
    QB Sage Rosenfels, from Minnesota

    So, I'm wondering how many Cyclones are still active and on rosters in the NFL? Here's who I can think of off the top of my head:

    Tim Dobbins, LB with Houston
    Kelechi Osemele, OL with Baltimore
    Ahtyba Rubin, DL with Cleveland
    Leonard Johnson, DB with Tampa Bay

    Probably missing somebody obvious here. EDIT: Thanks for LJ, I knew I was forgetting at least one (and maybe more).

    Re: Updates on Cyclones in the NFL

    We will see if LJ lands there after the rosters are reduced today. I hope so. I think Sage or Seneca could get picked up by someone, but both have been in the league for a while so hard to say. I was really pulling for Franklin to land a spot this year.

    Sims surprises me. I think he'll end up on a practice squad somewhere at least.

    Re: Updates on Cyclones in the NFL

    The expectation is LJ will get cut.

    I read this online a couple hours ago. Will see if I can find the link.

    Really surprised about Sage. He has had great numbers in the preseason.

    For a team that is against having good quarterbacks that is a bad thing so don't be surprised he was cut.

    I wouldn't call them "great". He played decent in garbage time against 3rd teamers in two games, but looked awful against Buffalo. What it all boils down to is age and cost. He has too much of both. I'm sure he'll get picked up by someone, but if not, it was a good career
