It was a busy weekend across the NFL landscape as teams trimmed their rosters to 53 players. That meant plenty of movement for fringe players and new homes for former Volunteers.

Unfortunately for several Volunteers, the outcome wasn’t what they had hoped. Below is a roundup of where everyone landed.

  • Josh Dobbs was cut by the Jaguars, but didn’t stay on the market for very long. The Pittsburgh Steelers brought Dobbs back to his initial NFL landing spot on Sunday, where he will once again backup Ben Roethlisberger.
  • Kendal Vickers went from the CFL to the NFL, making the 53 man roster with the Raiders.
  • Jauan Jennings signed with the 49ers practice squad after being cut on Saturday.
  • Daniel Bituli signed with the Rams practice squad.
  • Eli Wolf and Nigel Warrior landed on the Ravens practice squad.
  • Kahlil McKenzie has moved back to the defensive side of the ball, signing with the Bengals on their practice squad.
  • Former Bengal Josh Malone did not make the Jets 53-man roster, but did sign to their practice squad.
  • Tyler Bray remains with the Bears on the practice squad.
  • Jason Croom also sticks with his original organization, landing on the Bills practice squad.

The NFL season kicks off this Thursday night with the Chiefs hosting the Texans. The rest of the league will open on Sunday, along with two additions games coming on Monday night.
