Final Preseason Games Mark End Of The Line For Many NFL Hopefuls

Most fans don't put too much stock into the final preseason weekend, by now most of the teams have decided who they're going to keep on their final 53 man roster and much of the game just comes down to avoiding injuries. Sure, a player, here and there, could do something to really flash and perhaps earn a spot on the roster or practice squad, but tonight, over 500 players will lose their jobs.

As Andrew Brandt, a former NFL personnel executive puts it, there's not a lot they can do about it, either.

The Seahawks will have to cut as many as 22 players following tonight's matchup with the Raiders, in order to get down to the league-mandated limit of 53. A few players will go to the injured reserve or PUP list, and a few might catch on with another team, but for many, tonight is the end of the line. It's a sobering afterthought to a game that most people probably won't pay too much attention to.
