The two players I will be looking at the most will be Moa and Pape. The other ones probably have no shot at a roster spot.

Plus here is Tony Pape's week 5 Diary:

Well it still remains to be seen if our draftees, UDFA and FA can beat these guys for a spot, they are all young and unexpensive, I wouldnt mind any of them at least in TC.

Pape is the only one I'm excited to see. He was a steal in the 7th round.

Pape likely has the best chance but Moa, the former gangbanger, is the best story and the underdog I'm rooting for! Moa had not been a FB/H-back in college. If he shows something in NFLE he could get a good look by us or even after our camp by someone else.

Back to Pape, I think he has a chance to make the roster, he'll be an NFLE exemption and thus will be there until the final cut. Gives him a chance to show something. Since our Oline is utterly up in the air, he has a chance, slim but a chance.

How much do players get paid in NFL Europe?
They are paid the amount agreed to on their NFL contract. As Clumpy explained it to me, most of the players in the NFLE are earning NFL minimum

Yeah Moa and Pape would be 2 to keep an eye on. I believe they both will make our team next year.

Moa might have a chance to make it with the big boys if he produces in Europe.

I am rooting for Moa too, especially after reading about him saving that kid from drowning recently. I think it was on ESPN but it mentioned that that Pape talked about it in his diary.
