With the cut-down deadline just two days away, the final four of the “On The Fringe” players get one last chance to make an impression with their teams.
Unfortunately, one of those four — David Tyree — will sit out the Giants’ preseason finale against the Patriots.
As for the Cardinals’ Lance Long, the Falcons’ Coy Wire and the Vikings’ Ian Johnson, the final countdown to 53 is on.
Long continues his quest to squeeze into the Cardinals’ crowded receiving corps when his team visits Invesco Field at Mile High to take on the Broncos. NFL Network will re-air the game on Friday at 1 a.m. ET.
Johnson’s final opportunity to win the hearts and minds of his coaches will take place on Friday night at the H.H.H. Metrodome, when the Vikings take on the Cowboys. The game will be broadcast live on NFL Network, with kickoff set for 8 p.m. ET.
You can also keep track of the “On The Fringe” players’ fates on NFL Network, which will air a 90-minute roster cuts special starting at 7 p.m. ET on Saturday.
