Service academy products Chad Hall (Air Force) and Caleb Campbell (West Point) saw the turk on Saturday, and they had to bring their playbooks — Hall (cut by the Eagles) and Campbell (cut by the Lions) were sliced as teams reduced their rosters to meet the NFL’s 53-man roster mandate by today.
And according to the Twitter realm, it looks like both will end up on the practice squads of the teams that cut them. Reporter Adam Caplan claims that the Eagles would like to put Hall on their practice squad. Campbell, a seventh-round pick by Detroit in 2008, tweeted that he’s already been signed to the Lions’ practice squad.
Players on practice squads can be plucked by any NFL team, so if a better opportunity comes along, Campbell and Hall can chase it.
