Wildcats Place 19 on NFL Rosters


MANHATTAN, Kan. – Nineteen former Kansas State players survived final
NFL cuts on Sunday as teams trimmed their rosters down to the maximum
53-man active roster and eight-man practice squad.

Of the 19 players, 10 were on offense, eight were on defense, and one
was a specialist.

Former Wildcats of note on NFL rosters include eighth-year defensive end
Darren Howard of the Philadelphia Eagles, fifth-year cornerback Terence
Newman of the Dallas Cowboys and fifth-year fullback Rock Cartwright of
the Washington Redskins.

All three Wildcats who were drafted this past April made their
respective squads, as Yamon Figurs (Baltimore – 3rd round) and Zac
Diles (Houston – 7th round) made the active roster, while Thomas
Clayton (San Francisco – 6th round) was placed on the practice squad.
