Mostly good news for UConn grads on cutdown day

Taking a look at the list of cuts as NFL teams got down to the 75-player maximum today, the only former Huskies I saw getting cut loose was rookie free agent wide receiver Michael Smith who was listed under the waived/injured list.

Smith was listed as having a left knee injury.

Linebacker Lawrence Wilson was cut by the Chicago Bears on Sunday.

Among the players on the bubble who made it among the final 75 players on their respective NFL teams are WR Kashif Moore (Steelers), WR Nick Williams (Redskins), WR Marcus Easley (Bills), LB Danny Lansanah (Jets) and QB Dan Orlovsky (Buccaneers).

By my count there are 19 UConn products currently on NFL rosters heading into the final round of cuts as teams have to get down to 53 players by Saturday.
