Two former Rutgers players found themselves new NFL homes this past week.
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.
In addition, the Dallas Cowboys signed former LB/DE Ka'Lial Glaud.
LB Justin Anderson and G Reshod Fortenberry were waived/injured. LB Jonathan Brown (Illinois) and LB Ka’Lial Glaud (Rutgers) were signed— Jon Machota (@jonmachota) August 4, 2015
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.
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.
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.
Kenny Britt just beat Janoris Jenkins handily on go route in two-min offense. I forget how damn big Britt is. #RamsCamp— Eric Edholm (@Eric_Edholm) August 4, 2015
Cooper seems to be rebounding from a weak 2014 and has had a strong training camp so far.
Chiefs CB Marcus Cooper having solid morning so far. Had a couple of PBUs during team drills frim what I saw, and an INT during one-on-ones.— Herbie Teope (@HerbieTeope) August 7, 2015
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.

That's all for this week's training camp update but check back next Sunday for more news on Knights in the NFL!
Note: It appears that Jamil Merrell is no longer with the Bears, and hasn't been since June 8th.
