The final week of preseason is usually reserved for the players trying to make teams. Unfortunately, there were a handful of Hokies that didn't make the cut.
Xavier Adibi cut by Texans (signed by Vikings), David Clowney cut by the Panthers, Chris Ellis cut by the Steelers, Vincent fuller cut by the Titans, John Graves cut by the Texans, Pierson Prioleau cut by the Saints, Shayne Graham cut by the Cowboys, Macho Harris cut by the Steelers, Andre Smith cut by the Bears, and Steven Friday cut by the Texans. There's a good chance that some of these guys will land somewhere else or even on said team's practice squad.
James Anderson was rewarded with a new contract by
James Anderson the Carolina Panthers. Darren Evans made the Colts final roster.
Follow the jump to see how Hokies (that actually played) did in the final week of preseason.
Same as before, for my own sanity, this is going to be an alphabetical list (by last name). Also, since the big uglies on the offensive line don't really get any stats, we're just going to skip them. Sorry. If you notice that I've missed anyone, please leave a comment.
