Now that the NFL preseason is officially over, teams face some difficult decisions with mandatory roster reductions.
Teams are expected to trim their rosters down to 53 players today, which could bring good and bad news for several HBCU players.
While it is possible that we could see numerous HBCU names announced being cut by their respective team, it does not mean they will not be part of an NFL team in the future.
If they are not announced as part of a team’s 53-man roster, a player could still have their waivers claimed by another team or be signed to their current team’s practice squad.
Here, we will track the whereabouts of all HBCU talent in play as reports come down.
