Great info on Gophers in the NFL and their contracts. Of the 14 Gophers with contracts 10 are on their rookie deals. We are 40th in college teams with NFL players, but rank lower than than when it comes to total earnings. However, that will be changing in the years to come as we go up the list.

Ex-Gophers wideout Drew Wolitarsky, 27, has 30 receptions and a TD for for the CFL’s Winnipeg Blue Bombers, who have him signed through 2023. Also in the CFL are ex-Gophers Steven Richardson, 26, with the British Columbia Lions, and Simoni Lawrence, 33, with the Hamilton Tiger-Cats.

Anyone know why the Houston coach decided that TJ is “inactive” for their game today?
Guessing that he didn't consider him one of their top 5 receivers at this point. Either that or he's dinged up, but haven't heard that.

This past weekend of NFL action made me appreciate how many Gophers were in the league. It also made me wonder if you could build a professional roster with Gopher players.

It's not really possible with only current roster spots. But if you pulled from NFL rosters, practice squads, free agents and players from other leagues, you can put something interesting together.

Offense
  • QB: Chris Strevler - Practice Squad
  • RB1: Rodney Smith - Free Agent
  • RB2: Shannon Brooks - IFL Roster
  • WR1: Rashod Bateman - NFL Roster
  • WR2: Tyler Johnson - NFL Roster
  • WR3: Drew Wolitarsky - CFL Roster
  • TE1: Ko Kieft - NFL Roster
  • TE2: Maxx Williams - NFL Roster
  • OL: Sam Schlueter - Free Agent
  • OL: Daniel Faalele - NFL Roster
  • OL: Blaise Andries - Free Agent
  • OL: John Michael Schmitz - N/A
  • OL: Conner Olson - N/A
Defense
  • DL: Micah Dew Treadway - Free Agent
  • DL: Steven Richardson - CFL Roster
  • DL: Ra’Shede Hageman - Fee Agent
  • DL: Boye Mate - NFL Roster
  • LB: De’Vondre Campbell - NFL Roster
  • LB: Blake Cashman - NFL Roster
  • LB: Carter Coughlin - NFL Roster
  • SS: Eric Murray - NFL Roster
  • FS: Antoine Winfield Jr. - NFL Roster
  • CB: Benjamin St. Juste - NFL Roster
  • CB: Brian Boddy-Calhoun - Free Agent
Special Teams
  • K: Ryan Santoso - Free Agent
  • P: Peter Mortell - Free Agent

Rashod Bateman, who was often considered to lack that extra gear (in part because he played for Minnesota and not a CFP-type team) had a max speed of 21.48 MPH on his 75 yard TD.

This is the second-fastest ballcarrier speed of the year so far in the NFL. Looked smokin' fast burning the Dolphins with speed.

Ko Kieft just got targeted by Tom Brady in a NFL game.

Jeez the Bucs have a lot of injuries. They should have hung on to TJ. He would almost be starting by now.
