NFL Cat Update

[Updated Tuesday 9/2] Sunday was cut-down day in the NFL as all the pro teams reduced rosters to 53 players.<br><br> Several Wildcats were on the bubble - who survived and who are still on the team?...

Here's the status of the Rookie Wildcats trying to make NFL Teams this year:
[Updated info is bold/italic]
Damien Anderson/Arizona Cardinals : One of 4 running backs - couldn't check their depth chart. Some folks say he's the #3 RB - The Cardinal official web site doesn't

Austin King/Tampa Bay Bucaneers: No doubt, is on Tampa Bay's depth chart at #2 all preseason.

Jeff Roehl/NY Giants: Only undrafted free agent that made the 53 man roster on the O-Line.

Sam Simmons/Miami Dolphins: Made the team this year at Wide Receiver after riding the taxi squad last year.


Other Cats:

D'Wayne Bates/Minnesota Vikings: Firmly established as the Vikings #3 WR. Playing behind Randy Moss

Kevin Bentley/Cleveland Browns:
is back in the swing ot things playing with another Cat at Linebacker...

Barry Gardner/Cleveland Browns: not sure if he's the starter in the middle, but Barry is very much a part of the Browns Linebacker rotation. Did see where he played some outside backer also. Now on Browns depth chart as the backup weak side LB.

Napoleon Harris/Oakland Raiders: He's with the team playing MLB, but very little news about his progress. Is still the starter in the middle.

Matt O'Dwyer/Cincinatti Bengals: Still playing Guard for the Bengals.

Salem Simon/NY Jets:
was cut over the weekend.

Harold Blackmon - was cut by Seattle. Sean Bennett was cut by the Jets earlier in the preseason. We need to confirm what Javiar Collins is doing -he is still with the Cowboys as an OT, but the Dallas site does not list a 2 deep.
