Clemson alum Amari Rodgers will be looking for a new NFL home
Amari Rodgers, who played wide receiver for the Clemson Tigers from 2017-20, was released on Sunday by the Houston Texans.
Rodgers was drafted in 2021 by the Green Bay Packers, and was released by them after Week 10 of the 2022 season. Houston picked him up off waivers and he was on their roster for the balance of the season.
There is a chance Rodgers could be claimed off waivers again, but if not he will become a free agent.
Rodgers address his release on Twitter:
Rodgers is a class individual and it seems likely he will get another chance in the NFL.
Clemson Tigers in the NFL are making headlines in fall camp
The NFL has launched their fall camps in preparation of the 2023 season, and several Clemson players are making plays that are finding their way to social media.
Teammates Trevor Lawrence and Travis Etienne are looking to take the Jacksonville Jaguars to another level following their appearance in the Divisional Round of the 2022 playoffs.
Lawrence is also finding chemistry with new receiver Calvin Ridley, which could be a big upgrade at the position for the Jaguars this year.
The most likely team to challenge Jacksonville in the AFC South is the Tennessee Titans, who have signed Clemson alum DeAndre Hopkins. Nuk decided to make a highlight of his own at Friday’s camp session.
Meanwhile in Kansas City, undrafted free agent Justyn Ross appears determined to show the NFL what a big mistake they made when they passed on drafting him. Here he shows the ability to catch the ball in traffic that he demonstrated at Clemson.
That clip followed this one from Saturday when Ross juked the defender so hard he had time to clean his hands off before he made the reception.
Here’s hoping Rodgers finds a new NFL home soon so he can start making some highlights too.
For the second time in just a few short days, Tiger Nation is saying goodbye to one of their own. David Davis passed away Sunday at the age of 53. Mr. Davis played defensive tackle for Danny Ford and Ken Hatfield from 1988-91.
