Knights in the NFL // Training Camp Update 1!

New, 4 comments

With NFL training camps in full swing, I'll be giving weekly updates on how former Scarlet Knights are doing in their respective camps. Stay tuned for any new signings, who is doing well, who isn't, and anything else you would need to know about the Knights in the NFL

New Signees

Two former Rutgers players found themselves new NFL homes this past week.

Steve Beauharnais

In the wake of Aldon Smith's release, the San Francisco 49ers signed former Rutgers linebacker Steve Beauharnais.

Beauharnais is most likely a camp body, but still has a chance at making a roster that has become incredibly thin as of late.

Ka'Lial Glaud

In addition, the Dallas Cowboys signed former LB/DE Ka'Lial Glaud.

Glaud is likely in the same situation as Beauharnais, although it is worth noting that 7 players from the 2012 defense are currently in NFL training camps. That is an awesome statistic that goes to prove how great that team was.

Trending Up

Brandon Coleman

Coleman is one guy who has specifically been talked about a lot for good reasons. In fact, Coleman is even being compared to his once elite teammate Marques Colston. He is destined to see the field plenty this year and continues to work harder and harder to make up for a dismal rookie year. Expect a big year from a big player.

Kenny Britt

Hopefully Britt has found a home in St. Louis and can reach his full potential. So far, Britt has seemed to have no issues and is looking great on and off the field. If Britt keeps his head down, he will be elite.

Marcus Cooper

Cooper seems to be rebounding from a weak 2014 and has had a strong training camp so far.

No One!

I looked all over but couldn't really find anything bad about former Knights in training camp. Some of them may have made a mistake or two, but no player has seemingly done anything to seriously hurt their stock.
