Every year, over 250 players enter the professional ranks of the NFL, as they are selected by their new teams. However, if a player is not among those picked, it does not mean their football careers are over.
In fact, it means that they are still fighting to achieve their NFL dreams.

General manager Joe Douglas and head coach Robert Saleh are looking to build a winning culture in Florham Park. Coming off of a 2-14 season, almost every player is going to be on the block, competing to make the team.
Luckily, this could prove beneficial for these undrafted free agents.
