Hokies in the NFL 2021 Season: Roster

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.

Appreciate the effort you put in to doing this.

If Phillips doesn't get a roster spot anywhere this will be his last year on the list.

Such a shame the XFL had to fizzle out like it did. The man was putting on a clinic in his few games.

May we all get what we want and never what we deserve.

I was really hoping that someone would scoop him up after the season he had in the XFL. Fingers crossed that it still might happen!

I'm drinking. Cinci Hokie beat me by 54 seconds.

Great minds think alike!

May we all get what we want and never what we deserve.

Cam's currently in the CFL with the Toronto Argonauts for those that want to know. It looks like he signed with the Hamilton Tiger Cats in June, but was cut. Then Toronto picked him up but best I can tell, he's on their practice squad.

Is it bad luck or does it show the talent disparity between the XFL, NFL and CFL? It's hard to believe one of the XFL stars can't even get a roster spot.

Has anyone else from the XFL made it onto a NFL roster?

The Panther's #2 QB is PJ Walker, who was Cam's QB in the XFL.

Darryl Tapp- Assistant Defensive Line Coach, 49ers

Didn't know that about Jeff King, good for him.

I thought Corey Fuller was a GA here? Guess he got a new job

I don't have a link but I read That Reggie Floyd signed with the Titans yesterday.

Thanks I'll add him tonight.

Football team released Stroman:

Hokies United l Ut Prosim

That's a huge bummer. According to the article he was on the player unable to participate list and got a settlement. I hope he can get healthy and find a landing spot somewhere.

anybody know the injury details for deablo and keene?

Not sure about Diablo but I think Keene is a knee and out for the year.

Keene is out for year with a knee injury, correct.

Cuts have started. Reggie Floyd, Stroman, Adonis all cut.

Justus Reed and Isaiah Ford both Cut.

Damn Ford had been a contributor

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

Ford who is inarguably one of the top WR to ever play at VT is unfortunately a dime a dozen type player in the NFL. He would have had the same draft prospects whether he left after his junior year or came back. That's why it still burns me that he, Evans, and Bucky didn't come back for one last ride in 2017.

Evans made the choice going in to the season. He couldn't come back because of academics.

It's Time to go to Work

I don't think he would have come back if he had a 4.0

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

That's sort of how I recall things. I believe he told Fuente before he even arrived he was in for one year then gone. Can't say whether or not his academics were in good standing (maybe he let them slide because he knew it didn't matter), but his plan was one and done with VT regardless.

Joey Slye Cut from Panthers.

Bracing myself for cut news today. This is always one of my least favorite days as a Hokie fan.

If you're not sure if my comment warrants a "/s", it probably does.

Only NFL news I'm waiting on for cuts now is Trey Edmunds. Rest of expected cuts have been announced. Don't think (but you never know this year) there will be any others after him.

Trey Edmunds cut. Now it's time for practice squad or FA signings for the next week or so.

Looks like deablo was moved to LB.

[mod edit: removed link to paywalled content]

Content is behind a paywall.

Man I hope this works out and he becomes a 10 year player for us, really need an excuse to get a new jersey...

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:
โ€œI served in the United States Navy"

When he was drafted they announced him as a LBer from VT. But were they seeing if he could be an NFL safety too?

Jack Bauer fears no one. Except Xavier Adibi.

I see some suggesting that Cam Newton's best path to a starting job is with Houston. Is our guy Tyrod going to get the shaft for the 4th time. Man I hope not.

Tyrod is getting paid. It would be awesome to see him start and put together some good seasons but the man is still living the dream.

True, I am pretty sure he is actually getting as much as Watson this year. 10 million.

I can think of at least a few teams that are on shakier ground than the Texans:

-New Orleans... post Brees life and the best they can come up with is Winston
-Chicago - full QB room but they are trusting things to Fields, Foles, and Dalton... this is going to be a fantastically awesome train wreck
-Washington - there's a reason Fitzpatrick is on his 63rd team...

Hard disagree on a lot of these. The Texans are in such a hole with this (virtually nonexistent) past draft class and lacking future draft picks due to awful roster mismanagement. BOB just didn't understand roster building and they're gonna suck for a while bc of it. Meanwhile the Saints have a cap crunch big time, but Mickey Loomis is one of the better GMs.

Youston's relevance goes as does the Watson scenario.

Would love to know the number of moves Miami has made with Isaiah. It's a weekly occurrence.

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

I follow named Issac Rochell who plays for the colts now, he said that's not uncommon. I forget the reasoning for it but it's actually a good thing.

He said give to me Roscoe

Tyrod vs Trevor this week, I'll be looking forward to that! Hopefully Tyrod's luck will finally turn around!

Hard to tell with many of your comments, plenty of them come across as you just being a jerk. But there is a good reason I try and keep two separate threads. Because if they combined there would be too many comments for it to load. Just trying to make this work each year.

Is it possible to edit the titles of the 2 separate threads to more clearly delineate their specific purposes? I think it is easy to get this "Roster Discussion" and "Gameday Discussion" threads mixed up.

Good suggestion, thanks.

Made a long field goal.

Been wondering if they were going to bring him up or just keep activating him only for games and sending him back down.

I think they can only activate a guy twice during a season before they have to bring him up and add him to the 53 man roster.

Gah! Sorry about that, here's a link to an article. Direct quote that I was referencing is below:

When we switched sides of the field for the fourth quarter, he's walking by me, and I'm just turning everybody up, going crazy, and he looks at me and goes, 'Man it's just a blessing to play with you guys. I really enjoy this.' And I'm just likeโ€“it slowed me down for a second and I just got really appreciative for having a teammate like that

Anyone know if Todd Washington is still coaching?

He used to play for us back in the late 90s, I still remember the Day he came by and sat across me in the building where the Burger King was (not sure if its still there)- Good guy.

Hokies, Local Soccer, AFC Ajax, Ravens

Yes, assistant OL coach for Jacksonville. He is included in the list of coaches in the original post.

Looks like Logan Thomas might have busted his Achilles.

They are saying ham string.

...with spirits true and faithful...

Super bummer for him.

He's looked quite good as a TE - despite the ineptitude of the WFT franchise he looked like he may have found a nice career for himself. Hope he heals quickly!

Just saw a post on Gobbler Country's fakebook page that Facyson got picked up by the Raiders. He might get some field time as CB is a great need for them.

Here we go, the final play of the game. ITโ€™S INTERCEPTED! ITโ€™S INTERCEPTED BY BANKS! HEโ€™S RUNNING IT ALL THE WAY DOWN THE SIDELINE! THE GAMECLOCK WINDS OUT! ANTONIO BANKS TAKES IT IN!

Does anyone know where Ashby is because the WFT could use a middle LB.......?

LT3 to IR with a hamstring injury.

Blewitt doesn't seem like the best name for a kicker.

I think it's more that "you can't miss PATs"

He has so much potential if he can just make the easy kicks.

Danny is always open

At least his name isn't Blewitt- WFT kicker.... should be then next shoe to fall.

Not sure where else to post, cause it doesn't warrant its own thread, but the in the most recent episode of the Ryen Russillo podcost, Steve Marucci (49ers) tells a great story about Jim Drunkenmiller. I was way too young to know about him, and my only frame of reference is the UVA game winning TD, but this was cool to hear. Starts around 16:30 depending on ads.

Guy can't catch a break. Had a great one-handed TD catch prior to the injury.

Hokies United l Ut Prosim

That sucks and the low hit on him seemed pretty dirty. The announcers were saying that low hits are legal between the tackles. With all the rules on hitting the QB and avoiding headshots, I'm surprised that direct hits to the knees are OK. Especially by a defensive player.
It just super sucks for Logan.

He did tear it up in the spring league

(add if applicable) /s

He was MVP of the championship game.

just another Fuente QB to the League smdh

the numbers donโ€™t lie and they spell disaster

In case y'all missed it. Ryan Willis is on the active roster for the Bears today. Which in that blizzard...in Seattle... hopefully he can get a snap or two, since we know that he's not afraid of chucking the ball down field regardless of condition.

Not the NFL but Adonis got drafted to USFL New Orleans Breakers, whose HC/GM is none other than Herbert Headcheeks Fedora.... The USFL draft is weird bc the draft was restricted to a specific position each round. Round 8 was the earliest a CB could go, he was the 5th CB off the board

Man Gobble I never create threads and I was about to for this one ๐Ÿ˜…

I like how they implement their compensatory picks. You get to pass on a round for an additional pick in a different round. It a team can take the compensatory pick before the round they pass on. Some intriguing strategy opportunities there. Here's a link to a better explanation: How Compensatory Picks Work in the USFL
