It was cut-down to 75 day, and a couple of former Nittany Lions perished in the process.
Former Nittany Lion Traffic Cone Miles Dieffenbach didn’t make the Steelers.
Penn State turncoat Khairi Fortt got the ax in Jacksonville.
Also, Glenn Carson got cut by Arizona and Mickey Shuler got cut by Atlanta.
On the positive side, Jesse James is still on the roster in Pittsburgh. Matt McGloin looked great doing fourth-quarter relief for Derek Carr at Oakland, moving the offense down the field very smoothly while going 9-11 with a touchdown and a two-point conversion. This followed Carr throwing a screen to the Cardinals for an 81-yard pick-six. Former Nittany Lion Traffic Cone Donovan Smith is still battling Kevin Pamphile for the starting LT spot at Tampa Bay. They’re currently listed as co-starters.
Gerald Hodges led the Vikes in tackles, and Mike Mauti saw some action. Sean Lee, the mainstay of the Dallas Cowboys defense, returning from injury, made three tackles.
The next day of reckoning will be Saturday, when NFL rosters must be chopped to their season total of 57 players. Good luck, Nittany Lions!
