Over the next two days, over 1,000 NFL hopefuls will lose their jobs as 32 NFL teams must cut their rosters from 90 to 53.

In years past, there was a first cut that brought the rosters down to 75, but the rules changed this year to just one massive cut. Unfortunately, some former UCF Knights will likely be part of those cuts.

We will be updating this page as we get more information regarding the NFL Alum-knights.
