Hokies in the NFL 2020

Welcome to another year of me trying to find every Hokie on a professional football contract. I will try to find every roster move in NFL as best I can. As always if you see a roster move please add a comment with it. I will not be doing any CFL or arena league anymore. It's really frustrating and time-consuming feel free to add them in the comments for others if you wish.

Is the Bucky Hodges a typo? Perhaps you meant Logan Thomas?

Yep

The only difference is the lack of a GODS GIFT tattoo I'm pretty sure

No LT didn't seem to fall after every catch he made yesterday

I have actually seen him projected top 10 in a few mocks. If so his decision to sit out is that much more of a good idea to protect his body

I can imagine no more rewarding a career. And any man who may be asked in this century what he did to make his life worthwhile, I think can respond with a good deal of pride and satisfaction:

LT missed a block in a huge way a few minutes ago on an option play.

Isaiah Ford getting a few targets but not really any catchable balls yet

The Orange and Maroon you see, that's fighting on to victory.

Great to see him get some points on the board!

I hate that, whatever they're calling themselves now, have so many Hokies. I want to root for them, but I can't root for anything good for that team as a Cowboys fan.

As an Eagles fan, I share your sentiments.

As a WTF fan whose team hasn't won in forever, I don't know how to win so...

Is coronavirus over yet?

Fellow Boys fan. I fully agree. I cheer the players and boo the team. I am all for Hokie success but hope the team they play for fails miserably...

I was amused at the Fox pregame at the dig to that team. "I can't believe they are still using that offensive name."
"They actually are 'The Washington Football Team' now."
"I know. I am offended that they are calling themselves a football team."

Slye having a solid day as well.

Slye needs to stop missing gimmes. Dude can hit from 50 but misses xps like I've never seen. I didn't watch today so maybe it wasn't his fault but he's gotta make the chip shots.

Potential typo for Keene Dalton on the Patriots.

Edit: fixed

Isn't Cam on the Panthers? I thought I saw that somewhere, did he get released already?

Yep cut. With no preseason games and early cutdowns there are only a handful of new UDFA on any active rosters across the entire NFL.

Well damn. I was rooting for him to stick to the roster and make a name for himself at the NFL level.

When injuries inevitably happen he'll get at least a practice squad shot.

Prayers up for Tyrod:

https://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2020/09/20/tyrod-taylor-is-release...

"Prior to kick off, Tyrod Taylor experienced difficulty breathing and was taken to the locker room for evaluation. He was transported to the hospital shortly thereafter to undergo further evaluation," the team said. "Taylor (chest) has since been discharged from the hospital. His status for next Sunday's game will be determined later in the week."

They gave him a shot so he could play

On the Thursday night game, Wyatt Teller got a couple shoutouts for the Browns in their win.
Isaiah Ford hauled in 7 catches for 79 yards against the Bills; he seems to be finding his place on the depth chart on the Dolphins.
Logan Thomas (WTF) caught 4 passes for 26 yards, Tim Settle had a couple of tackles, and Greg Stroman returned a punt (for one yard lol).
Terrell Edmunds (PIT) had 4 tackles and a sack against Denver.
Kyle Fuller (CHI) racked up 5 tackles in a win over the Giants.
Chuck Clark (BAL) made 6 tackles and a sack in a win over the Texans.
Joey Slye (CAR) is 4-4 on field goals in the first two games of the season.
Probably missing some!

Haha, I feel like the Lane Stadium videoboard doing the "Hokies in the NFL" section during home games.
Hey, if we're not gonna be in Lane this year, someone's gotta keep everyone updated, right?

Awesome, thanks for putting this together!

There were Duane Brown sightings in Seattle.

That sack from Edmunds ended the game essentially.

kyle fuller was shutting down his guy all game as well. Lots of shoutouts from the announcers

Danny is always open

Schefter reporting that T-mobile was stabbed in the lungs by the team doctor who was trying to administer a pain killer shot for cracked ribs. Oof

I can imagine no more rewarding a career. And any man who may be asked in this century what he did to make his life worthwhile, I think can respond with a good deal of pride and satisfaction:

And now out for an extended time. I thought it was weird that he had to be rushed to the hospital right before the game. He can't catch a break right now.

Now saying he is out indefinitely because of this. I smell a lawsuit.

Tyrod is now the new owner of the LA Chargers. WOooo!!!

it's not clear if the lung was punctured by the needle or if it was punctured by the cracked rib, just that the lung was punctured when the injection was administered

A score above 90 is "Elite" I think. 75 is average if I remember correctly, anything below 60 is bad and getting worse.

Sadly, the tweet is incorrect. Teller doesn't sandwich people, he ๐Ÿฅž PANCAKES them.

I'm sure you can find somewhere on the internet where some troll argues that a pancake really is a sandwich

Ford to the Patriots. Not sure how that helps him.

Wet stuff on the red stuff.

Join us in the Key Players Club

to answer your sort-of-question, it helps him by putting him on a team where his competition for snaps is "Damiere Byrd", "Jakobi Meyers", "Gunner Olzewski", and "N'Keal Harry". Only Byrd has even 20 catches this year

"Why gobble gobble chumps asks such good questions, I will never know." - TheFifthFuller

I'm still surprised the Patriots blew a first round pick on Harry. Very uncharacteristic of them.

The Orange and Maroon you see, that's fighting on to victory.

Their drafting has largely been awful for years fwiw

"Why gobble gobble chumps asks such good questions, I will never know." - TheFifthFuller

Yup they have not done well drafting offensive players the last few years hence why the WR corp is in rough shape. Ford will be a much needed injection of something to give them possibly one more atleast talented WR.

Directions from Blacksburg to whoville, go north till you smell it then go east until you step in it

They just need to find a scrappy Wes Welker type player. First in, last out kind of guy. Real cerebral player, maybe a coach's son.

Have you seen the Pats offense it's pretty bad.

Their main problem, imo, is not enough Dalton Keene

There was an interesting interview with the Pat's Coach. He admitted they sold out to win 3 superbowls and their contracts reflected that and that the rebuild has finally hit. It also didn't help that they had more players opt-out than any other team and those were some of the big contract big impact players. They also opted out in August and before the opt out they were incredibly tight on the cap. Once the opt out personnel cap room was opened, the good players were already gone from free agency.

That's a good point as well their defense was heavily hit hard by players like hightower not playing they will have some tough choices this off-season. Selling out for three super bowls isn't a bad trade off in reality though

Directions from Blacksburg to whoville, go north till you smell it then go east until you step in it

How many teams wouldn't sell out to win 3 superbowls in what 5-6 years? They are looking at an ugly situation this year with more than 27 million in dead money on players no longer on the team.

With Edelman out for probably the season, there is PT available in the slot. Plus, he gets to join Dalton Keene.

He didn't even try to go around Philip rivers either.

What about for when we are talking about Hokies in the NFL?

Other thread. In non covid years there is so much movement of players this thread was getting to be too long for me to keep up with any Tech players being injured or dropped. It just makes it easier to use this thread only for player news. Other thread being about their individual games.

It's odd that they would add him as a running back because he always should have been a linebacker.

Isaiah Ford with Hokie luck in the NFL, gets traded to the Patriots now that they are terrible. Leaves a Miami team that is going to reach the playoffs for the first time in forever and just had the guy in front of Ford go down with a season ending injury.

remind me to pick up LT for my fantasy team next week.....................

Logan Thomas. Hall of Fame quarterback Tight End.

Another white bronco? The first one didn't go too far.

Don't know if this has already been posted but our boy Kam is in a Tostitos commercial:

Love that he's getting that Tostitos money but damn if I don't get just a twinge of sadness when he says "We don't get to play but we can watch it". Stupid injuries. It ain't fair man. Some real dirtbags play for years and years yet a class act like Kam gets cut short. At least he got that ring (should have been SB MVP).

In this Wednesday afternoon Sunday Night football game, Chuck Clark has already had a nice tackle for a stop. Still waiting for one of the Edmundi to get their names called.

This was actually Thursday night football which became Sunday Night Football which for a moment was Tuesday Night Football and then Wednesday Afternoon Football because the NFL couldn't bump the lighting of a Christmas Tree

Technically it started as a Special Thursday Edition of Sunday Night Football which became Sunday Afternoon Football...and then Tuesday/Wednesday.

and a heady football play by rell to boot

Isaiah Ford cut by the Patriots yesterday. Hopefully, the Dolphins bring him back

So Patriots made moves with two Hokies Ford gets released and Dalton Keene gets activated off of IR. The Dolphins then signed Ford to their practice squad.

They need to activate Ford. The Dolphins receiving corps is as thin as any in the NFL.

"Why gobble gobble chumps asks such good questions, I will never know." - TheFifthFuller

Tim Settle had this in his IG story. Thought that was kinda interesting since I haven't seen him post a lot of other VT stuff
Edit: he just posted about Tremaine making the pro bowl

Hokie Club member since 2017

Does he end up under center this week with all the Haskins strip club nonsense going on? Other two QBs have about zero pro experience.

The WFT doesn't have the guts to suspend him. Which is why they have sucked for 25 years.

That is actually what they paid out in 2009. Washington Post is just now posting the story about it.

Because it was under NDA but a #sauce just now leaked the settlement details

Hokie Club member since 2017

At what point do you just bench haskins and put LT in at QB

Directions from Blacksburg to whoville, go north till you smell it then go east until you step in it

Three possessions ago....

Benched Haskins and the backup was ODU grad Taylor Heinicke. Was anyone else watching when they incorrectly said he was the QB that beat VT and "help put the Monarchs on the map"?
1. That wasn't even the QB that beat VT. That dude forewent his senior year to go to seminary school
2. C'mon CBS- Why you gotta hurt my feelings like that when I'm watching NFL games
3. We gotta be out of "put on the map" cards by now no matter who we lose to going forward right? You can only be make-a-wish U for so long

Hokie Club member since 2017

Nope. The QB that put 700 yards on VT's defense was a walk on seminary candidate that did not win any other starts of note. Great job by Fuente

Yeah I informed my son that CBS was wrong on that statement also. I had to look the actual QB up but I knew that Heinicke was long gone when we imploded in Norfolk...

I've seen Caleb ranked from 1st DB to 4th. As high as #4/5 and as low as around #20.... I personally would take Caleb over the others based off ability, speed and measurables...

I haven't studied the eligible CB's in depth, but there are always surprises on draft night as teams fall in love with measurables, and reputation, etc. TCU has been a below .500 team the past several years, but their players are all over the first and second rounds or the NFL draft. If LSU has an under the radar CB in the draft, or Bama has a 2nd string CB in the draft, Farley might not want to put a down payment on a lambo until he sees where he finally goes.

Farley will likely be the one they all fall in love with over height, speed, and measurables. His biggest competition for first CB off the board will be Patrick Surtain II from Bama who has a higher floor and NFL pedigree from his pro bowl CB father.

Farley's appeal is that he likely has the highest ceiling of all the CB prospects because of his rare hip fluidity and quickness at that size, but he's certainly the riskier option based on playing CB for only two years of his career.

I would be shocked if Farley was taken any lower than the 2nd CB off the board, and that's with as an objective POV as I can muster as a VT fan.

Well if that isn't bad ass. Talk about a career.

Some people are just a cut above.

Don't want to run from him. Can you imagine the pain from that tackle.

Anybody know what Vince Hall is up to. Maybe he's also law enforcement.

If that were the case, you would not want 9-11 called on you

Never Forget #1 Overall Seed UVA 54, #64 UMBC 74

I never really had an NFL team that I was die-hard about growing up, but I actively disliked the team from DC as a kid, don't know why. Over the past few seasons, they've started to grow on me, I guess maybe cause they seem to like picking up us Hokies. Anyways, went to the NFL shop website today to see about maybe grabbing a jersey of one of our guys, and I'll be damned....the only men's jersey you can right now is Dwayne Haskins Jr...at least it's marked down to $60

Now finish up them taters; I'm gonna go fondle my sweaters.

Nice. Guess I will be watching the Alouettes games when they start up in June.

Tyrod to the Texans baby! Shitty management but him and a fuller could work some offensive magic!

He said give to me Roscoe

What the hell is houston doing? This move makes no sense to me with the watson situation

Directions from Blacksburg to whoville, go north till you smell it then go east until you step in it

I think he'll have a good chance to play because I feel like Watson is willing to sit out the year. But I'm still disappointed its a team that's going nowhere. I felt like the best place for him would have been WFT but they chose to ride that FitzMagic roller coaster instead.

With the Pats signing both Hunter Henry and Jonnu Smith, I'm a little worried for Dalton Keene's spot on the team. He spent most of last year hurt and even when he was available, they still didn't use him much.

Am I the only one that completely missed that the Bears cut Kyle Fuller and he's now on the Broncos? This is from almost 2 months ago now.

Yeah this was a little while ago. Salary Cap casualty. Everyone signing one year deals this year since the cap is expected to go up big time next year with a post pandemic season in the books.

not just post-pandemic year, but a bonkers new tv deal really juices the revenue too

"Why gobble gobble chumps asks such good questions, I will never know." - TheFifthFuller

Believe it or not this deal was below market value for his talent level

I just sit on my couch and b*tch. - HokieChemE2016

I believe it. He took a one year deal to go to a coach and a system where he can shine, then hit the market again when more teams have gobs of cap space

"Why gobble gobble chumps asks such good questions, I will never know." - TheFifthFuller

Talk about a do it all kind of guy, he even played QB for us for a few games. After a long career mostly as a Special Teamer he has been coaching ever since. Great dude

After this stint, I would not be adverse to him coming back to Blacksburg at some point as head coach. I know there is a difference between NCAA head coach and NFL special teams coordinator, but

He played under Frank Beamer and Bud Foster at Tech, Mike Martz and Lovie Smith in St. Louis, Jack Del Rio and Mike Smith at Jacksonville, Romeo Crennell, Eric Mangini, Todd Grantham, Mel Tucker, and Rob Ryan at Cleveland.

He coached under/with Pete Carroll, Dan Quinn, Ken Norton Jr, Robert Saleh, Tom Cable, and Brian Schottenheimer in Seattle

He will have coached under/with Urban Meyer, Charlie Strong, and Bob Sutton at Jacksonville

He has a Super Bowl ring.

His pedigree is legit.
