    I remember reading Ogun saying that when your an undrafted free agent they treat you like garbage.. idk it must be rough though.. being undrafted then signed cut signed released signed cut signed ... and finally getting your big break.. (and turn down 1.6 mil / 1 yr) < lol jk
    but yeh it must be tough

    The list is misleading because players such as Warner, Garcia, Delhomme, Gadsden, Dixon, Ismail, Smart (aka He hate me) all played in various leagues such as NFL Europe, Arena football, CFL or even XFL before being signed...
    They weren't fresh out of college like the guys being brought in now..

    Oops! Yea, he was a fourth rounder who was later released by the Eagles.

    I'll replace him with...

    ROD SMITH (Broncos WR)
