K-State Slate: 6.6.15 - Is Delton the next Roberson?

A slow news cycle means we get to catch up with some former Wildcats.

Phil Sears-USA TODAY Sports

Yesterday marked 92 days from kickoff, and BracketCat's Roster Countdown rolled on, with #92, defensive tackle Matt Seiwert.

In his Big 12(blog), ESPN's Jake Trotter riffs on the Kansas State QB situation and thinks there's little chance the Wildcats could contend for the conference this year, unless Alex Delton is the next Ell Roberson, of course.

Meanwhile, we catch up with a few former Wildcats. No surprises here, but the Seattle Seahawks are still very excited about Tyler Lockett and he appears to be fitting right into the receivers competition there. He's also expected to make immediate impact in the return game, a fact Pete Carroll brought up again in a Town Hall gathering (Bob Condotta, Seattle Times).

Among undrafted free agent offensive linemen, B.J. Finney remains the favorite to earn a roster spot with the Pittsburgh Steelers. He has been practicing at right guard and has impressed with his versatility (Alex Kozora, Steelers Depot).

Jake Waters has been less fortunate. This past week, the Jacksonville Jaguars cut Waters after picking up Jeff Tuel from the Buffalo Bills on waivers (Mike Kaye, First Coast News).

In Montreal, Tramaine Thompson met much the same fate, with the Alouettes cutting the former Wildcats receiver after training camp (Herb Zurkowsky, Montreal Gazette).

This will be as non-spidery as possible, given the topic. As most of you are aware, a budget crisis in Kansas may lead to the furlough of thousands of state employees, including non-essential employees at Kansas State. The Collegian has more information, including links to university resources to help those on furlough (Jon Parton, K-State Collegian). Of relevance here, K-State Athletics will be unaffected by the furlough.
