Former Orlando Boone star Marvin Bracy, who made the 2016 U.S. Olympic team as a sprinter and had a brief college career at FSU, was cut by the Indianapolis Colts, and his cousin, Kermit Whitfield, a former Orlando Jones and FSU wide receiver, was cut by the Cincinnati Bengals. Whitfield, however, was signed to the Bengals practice squad.

Their former FSU teammate and Groveland South Lake product kicker Roberto Aguayo was cut by the Chicago Bears, but kickers have a tendency to find work in the NFL, so it likely will not be Aguayo’s last NFL shot.

Defensive lineman Corey Vereen, formerly of Winter Garden West Orange and Tennessee, was on injured reserve with the New England Patriots, but he was released on an injury settlement.
