While we are digging out of the Kentucky Derby weekend, a lot happened. 10 Cardinals were drafted in the NFL Draft….a school record (previously was 6). Former Louisville Quarterback Teddy Bridgewater was the Grand Marshall of the Kentucky Derby Festival Parade, and gave the “Rider’s Up” call at the 141st Kentucky Derby- a tremendous honor.
During the Derby and after the NFL Draft, 5 other Cardinals got some huge news after signing Free Agent Contracts after going undrafted:
Eli Rogers – Pittsburgh Steelers
Grant Donovan – Washington Redskins
Jake Smith – Cincinnati Bengals
Dominique Brown – Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Terell Floyd – Atlanta Falcons
The Cards will have roughly 38 athletes reporting the NFL camps this summer with Amobi Okoye & Michael Dyer both awaiting contracts and/or team assignments. 2015 could be a banner year for former Cardinals in the NFL. We’ll keep you up to date on who makes the final 53-man roster this summer.
