Gators in the NFL

Gators in NFL, Tampa

Did I miss something? Why isn't Earnest Graham getting the ball in Tampa, he did well for them last year. Is he injured?

Thought I'd add something, for those interested. I'm a huge CFL fan, and I was tracking down some Gators who play up here in Canada. Turns out the only current player is Chris Leak, who plays for the Montreal Alouettes, but we have featured such alumni as Kerwin Bell (My own Blue Bombers, and Toronto), Dee Webb (Calgary), and Reggie Lewis (Toronto).

Anyway, that's all I know for now, but I'll keep my eyes open.

I was wondering if Leak was still in the game or not. I thought I had heard he was going to be a QB for that new league that opened up in the States, but if he is playing for the CFL all the best to him.

Read this a few moments ago on ESPN.com. It states that Florida has 33 players on NFL rosters as of Week 4. They are tied for 6th in the nation for the most players in the NFL. Some of the other schools tied with them include Tennessee and Georgia. LSU currently leads the SEC with 35 and are ranked 4th nationally.

http://espn.go.com/blog/sec/post/_/id/14409/sec-week-4-did-you-know

"The SEC had four of the Top-10 schools in the country in producing NFL players on opening-day rosters this season. LSU was the top SEC school and fourth overall with 35 players on opening-day NFL rosters. Florida, Georgia and Tennessee were tied for sixth overall, each with 33 players on opening-day rosters. Texas led all schools with 40 players."

My beloved Winnipeg Blue Bombers just signed Dustin Doe to a spot on the practice roster. Our starter has had some foot injury issues, so Doe might even see some playing time this season. Even if he doesn't, though, it's awesome to have a Gator playing in Blue and Gold!
