Although they didn't make the active 53-man playing roster, ex-MISDers Jeff Fuller of the Miami Dolphins and David Douglas of the New York Giants can at least celebrate a foot in the NFL's door.
Jeff Fuller, Miami Dolphins
After four solid preseason games from the former McKinney Boyd wide receiver, Fuller was one of the eight players named to Miami’s practice squad last week. This means that he is not on the active roster and can be picked off the squad by another team, as long as he is then placed on that team's official 53-man active roster. Fuller finished the preseason with seven catches for 55 yards and zero touchdowns.
David Douglas, New York Giants
There were many reports leading up to the final cut down day that the former McKinney North Bulldog receiver had done enough in training camp and preseason games to earn a roster spot. Despite having just one catch for 23 yards, Douglas had several receptions called back due to penalties and appeared to be incredibly knowledgeable of the offensive system. However the Giants waived Douglas, a move that drew interest from several teams around the league, including his hometown Dallas Cowboys. But as of this past weekend, he is still a member of the New York Giants and has been named to the team’s practice squad.
Raymond Radway, No Current Team
After being one of the initial cuts from the Dallas Cowboys roster, the former North Bulldog is still without a team and was not part of the Cowboys practice squad named this past weekend.
