A few former Louisiana Ragin' Cajun football players received good news today, while others got word they wouldn't be on their team's final 53-man roster.

Today marked the deadline for NFL teams to trim their roster down to 53 active players.

In total, thirteen Louisiana Ragin' Cajun alums were in an NFL training camp this year.

Players who are on the team's active roster to begin the season get their season salary guaranteed.

Those who don't hope to catch on with a practice squad, or another team's roster.

A few Ragin' Cajun alums were never in danger of being cut, while the ones on the bubble did not get the news they were hoping for.

Here is a complete rundown of each:

Several other Ragin' Cajun alums were on the bubble. As is the case most years, a few Ragin' Cajun alums did not make the initial 53-man roster on their respective teams.

For a number of the released players, today is not the end of the road.

Some could be back on the practice squad, or on the active roster at some point.

Most teams make a number of roster moves after week 1 when salaries are no longer guaranteed for the entirety of the season.
