Louisville has 23 players on NFL rosters at the moment and we are still waiting for details of Marcus Smith’s 1st Round deal with the Philadelphia Eagles. We are also watching to see where Free Agents Michael Bush, David Akers, Kerry Rhodes, Deion Branch, and other Cards who potentially may be picked up in Free Agency. We will also keep an eye out for any cuts that may impact this group as well throughout camps.

In the meantime, Louisville’s NFL group has actually begun to crack the Top 195 for Country Total Annual GDP in developing nations and is taking aim at Tuvalu’s (a Polynesian Island Nation in the Pacific) GDP with a few more contracts.
