NFL Roster Tracker: 27 Huskies earn jobs this season

Maintaining a strong pro-football presence, 27 former University of Washington players have earned NFL roster spots after the 53-man cut day came and went on Tuesday — which is one less Husky than one year ago.

A whopping 13 of them are projected as starters, which is actually four more than last season at this time, and doesn’t include the injured Nick Harris, who was slated to start under center for the Cleveland Browns but was injured in his preseason opener. and lost for the season.

Former Husky defensive tackle Danny Shelton, who recently signed with the Kansas City Chiefs, might have been the biggest surprise among those who didn’t survive the roster cut. A seven-year veteran and starter in 72 of 100 NFL games, he reportedly gave an impressive tryout and was signed immediately, but he still didn’t stick.
