Clemson Football alums sign with new NFL teams
As NFL teams had to reach their 53-man rosters this week, most of them had to release several players, and as we noted yesterday, some Clemson Football players were among those released.
On Wednesday, a handful of them found new homes, and sometimes old homes.
Safety K-Von Wallace, released by the Eagles, was picked up off waivers by the Arizona Cardinals. The man who started at safety alongside Wallace in Clemson, Tanner Muse, was claimed off waivers by the Los Angeles Chargers following his release by the Steelers.
Three Clemson wide receivers landed back with their former teams on their practice squads. Amari Rodgers, Cornell Powell and Joseph Ngata were signed to the practice squads of the Indianapolis Colts, Kansas City Chiefs and Philadelphia Eagles, respectively.
ACC Expansion might happen, they’re kind of talking about it, who really knows anymore?
After the planned meeting of ACC schools was postponed because of the shooting on the campus of UNC, there haven’t been any announced meetings rescheduled because of the previously scheduled College Football Playoff meeting on Wednesday.
We learned from The Athletic’s Nicole Auerbach that ACC commissioner Jim Phillips did not attend in person, only remotely.
All this suggests is that perhaps Phillips has a few irons in the fire, and maybe he needed to be two places at once.
Clemson Football player Andrew Mukuba would be an outstanding spokesperson for Whataburger.
