This morning, former Kentucky cornerback Derrick Baity was released by the Houston Texans.

Throughout the day, several other former Wildcats were unfortunately added to the list of players cut by their respective franchises.

In the most shocking of all moves, Giants beat reporter Ryan Dunleavy reported this afternoon that CJ Conrad was released by the team.

Elsewhere, former Kentucky receiver Dorian Baker was waived by the Cleveland Browns.

The Jacksonville Jaguars also released Bunchy Stallings, leaving Josh Allen as the lone former Wildcat on the 53-man roster.

Meanwhile, the Dallas Cowboys placed Chris Westry on injured reserve with a hamstring injury, with the New York Giants also doing the same with George Asafo-Adjei due to a concussion.

In terms of Kentucky’s most recent draft class, Josh Allen (Jacksonville), Lonnie Johnson (Houston), Mike Edwards (Tampa Bay), and Benny Snell (Pittsburgh) all made the 53-man rosters of their respective teams, as expected.

Other former Wildcats who were released were Jon Toth (New York Jets), Jeff Badet (Minnesota), and Farrington Huguenin (Tampa Bay).

Best of luck to each of the former Kentucky football players in their search for new homes.

    Not surprised about Conrad after the comments made about him during the various KSR football comments. Best if luck to him on finding another team.

    Would love to see some of these guys in Cincy. Although, I almost would feel sad for them too. Bengals gonna seriously struggle.

    I’m hoping CJ and others can get with better teams now. Some of these guys showed real promise out there in the preseason

    As far as money goes I hope they get NFL contracts. But if they don’t, I’d love to see them in the XFL for a season to work on getting back to the NFL. And it would give me an extra reason to watch the XFL.
