The first full week of NFL preseason football is upon us.
This will be our first look at several former Wildcats as they make their NFL debuts, including Benny Snell (Steelers), Josh Allen (Jaguars), Lonnie Johnson (Texans) and Mike Edwards (Bucs).
We’ll also get to see veteran Cats suit up with their new teams for the first time, including Randall Cobb (Cowboys) and Za’Darius Smith (Packers).
There’s also a host of former Cats fighting for their roster lives, which makes each of these games all the more important.
