    I would expect he has a better than average chance of ending up on the practice squad. He didn't stand out but didn't have a bad training camp, Sanchez still has the pull of a first round starting QB, and the Jets have some older WRs on the roster so somebody getting hurt at the position is a posibility down the road.

    Wife just asked if that means Hayden breaks up with him. We have different priorities but it's a decent question

    This. Most teams don't out right cut draft picks without giving them at least 1 season on the practice squad.

    Yeah. If I remember the NFL rules correctly, a team needs to cut someone loose and give an opportunity to the guy as a free agent before it can assign him to the practice squad. Practice squad counts differently and the guy would have to sign a practice squad contract.

    He should come coach or volunteer for the team at CU while he trains and waits to be picked up.

    He had a preseason TD catch against the Eagles.

    There are a bunch of rules for the practice squad. The player can only be a rookie or first year player, limited amount of active time or practice squad time. He has to go on waivers first and if not claimed can be resigned. He also gets practice squad pay, I think it is something like $1500 a week. He also can be signed off the practice squad by any team in the league.
