Here is a look at when former FSU football stars will be taking the field during Week 4 of the 2016 NFL Preseason.
This week, the NFL will conclude the portion of their schedule that doesn’t count as the final slate of preseason games take place across the country. While some former FSU stars like Jameis Winston, Devonta Freeman and Kelvin Benjamin know that their jobs are safe for the coming season, there are plenty of former ‘Noles who will be using the final game to try and get a roster spot.
Names like James Wilder Jr., Tony Carter and others will be competing to make the final 53 man roster for their teams, which will be decided after final cuts are made at 4pm Saturday. Already, we have seen several former ‘Noles handed their pink slips following the first round of cuts, which were finalized Tuesday. This week is also different in that all the games where scheduled to be played on Thursday. However, the Tampa Bay/Washington game was moved to Wednesday due to expected heavy storms in Florida on Thursday.
