28 April 2008
Although the draft was terribly disappointing for all associated with Alabama football, the following Seniors from 2007 have signed contracts to join NFL Teams -
- Justin Britt - Cincinnati Bengals
- Matt Caddell - St. Louis Rams
- Chris Capps - Houston Texans
- Simeon Castille - Cincinnati Bengals
- Wallace Gilberry - New York Giants
- DJ Hall - New York Giants
- Keith Saunders - New England Patriots.
Each of these guys has an uphill battle to climb to make the roster for these teams, but former Bama player Anthony Madison was able to pull off this trick to make the Steelers. Tony Romo was also a free agent signee by the Dallas Cowboys.
While this situation is certainly not ideal for any of these young men, they will get a paycheck from an NFL team, and there is something to be said about that.
