More than a handful of Kentucky Wildcats are trying to earn a paycheck this weekend at NFL Rookie Mini-Camps.
Each NFL team gets two weekends to host camps for prospective and signed first-year players. A few Wildcats got a head start last weekend. Offensive tackle Kyle Meadows, who has already signed a free agency deal with the Green Bay Packers, was one of the first on the field. Matt Elam also got in on the action with the Baltimore Ravens.
Like Elam, Courtney Love is looking for a contract. Last weekend the former UK team captain tried out for the Browns. The linebacker told Steelers Depot he’s on Browns’ wait list. While he waits for the call, this weekend Love is trying out for his favorite team, the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Today four Wildcats are playing for a contract. Kendall Randolph is trying out for the Philadelphia Eagles, Kayaune Ross for the Indianapolis Colts, Chuck Walker with the Detroit Lions and Austin MacGinnis with the Chicago Bears. MacGinnis will have some Kentucky company with him, but Juice Johnson has already signed a free agency deal with Chicago.
On behalf of KSR, best of luck to all of the Cats as they pursue their NFL dream.
