Kentucky Wildcats Quickies: NFL Training Camp Edition

Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports

Training camps have now opened for all 32 NFL teams with several former Kentucky Wildcats looking to make impacts for their respective teams in 2015.

Chris Matthews is looking to parlay his breakout Super bowl performance into a bigger role with the Seahawks, and he's already getting run with the 1s. Bud Dupree is looking to make an impact in Pittsburgh, as is Za'Darius Smith in Baltimore. Danny Trevethan is just happy to be back on the field in Denver after missing more of last year due to injury.

Good luck to all of the former Cats looking to fulfill their NFL dreams.
