With the NFL season now just two days away, player rosters are just about set.
And at the moment, there are 10 former Huskies on active rosters (a few others are on practice squads). The 10 on active rosters, according to ESPN.com, are:
OT Khalif Barnes, Raiders
QB Mark Brunell, Jets
LB Donald Butler, Chargers
LB Mason Foster, LB
S Dashon Goldson, 49ers
C Olin Kreutz, Saints
CB Roy Lewis, Seahawks (However, he is on the Physically Unable to Perform list and won’t be eligible to play for six weeks).
QB Jake Locker, Titans
RB Marcel Reece, Raiders
S C.J. Wallace, Chargers
The three Huskies I see on practice squads are DE Daniel Te’o-Nesheim with the Eagles and WR D’Andre Goodwin and RB Austin Sylvester with the Broncos.
Going solely by the year they signed, here’s a breakdown of the coach that recruited each player:
— Don James (Brunell);
— Jim Lambright (Kreutz);
— Rick Neuheisel (Barnes, Wallace);
— Keith Gilbertson (Lewis, Goldson);
— Tyrone Willingham (Foster, Butler, Locker, Reece — and then each of the practice squad players).
