Former Wildcats among roster cuts at NFL deadline

Lynn Bowden Jr. isn’t the only former Wildcat on the move this Labor Day weekend.

With NFL teams needing to cut their roster down to 53 players by 4 p.m. ET this afternoon, several former Kentucky players came up just short in their hopes of making active game day rosters.

Among them? Chris Westry, TJ Carter, Jon Toth and Calvin Taylor.

Westry and Carter are seen as potential practice squad players for their respective teams, while Toth and Taylor are unknowns moving forward.

Michael Gehlken of the Dallas Morning News says that Westry is “fully expected to join the practice squad” if and when he clears waivers.

As for Carter, Nick Underhill of says the former Wildcat is a “potential candidate to stick around.”

As for the other afternoon cuts? We will have to see.

Earlier in the week former Kentucky wide receiver Ahmad Wagner was cut by the Chicago Bears, though numerous reports claimed that the 6-foot-7 pass-catcher could return to the practice squad.

Former UK star kicker Austin MacGinnis was also waived by the Los Angeles Rams after losing in the team’s starting kicker competition throughout training camp.

Best of luck to all of the former Wildcats in their pursuits of finding new homes sooner rather than later.

    Bowden just as i figured the raiders saw he what he did at UK was a fluke and no way to be relplicated in the NFL. I told you he would be a special teams player and be out once his contract was done. He will be special teams on the Dolphins 2 years max .
