Tysyn Hartman, Bryce Brown Among New K-State Alumni In NFL

After final cuts for NFL teams on Friday, the total number of Kansas State Wildcats in the NFL reached 16 as two rookies made final rosters despite not being highly-touted draft selections.

Eagles seventh-round pick and running back Bryce Brown managed to stick on Philly's active roster, while undrafted safety Tysyn Hartman earned a spot on the roster of the Kansas City Chiefs. Hartman is the second K-State alum on the Chiefs, joining Ryan Lilja, a former undrafted free agent himself.

Other notable K-State alumni are Saints running back Darren Sproles and Bengals cornerback Terence Newman. A two-time Pro Bowler, Newman is the most tenured of the Wildcats' alumni in the NFL, entering season his 11th season at defensive back. Sproles had a career-high seven receiving touchdowns in 2011.

The NFL season for all K-State alumni will begin on Sunday as neither the Cowboys or Giants will feature a K-State player when they face-off on Wednesday night.
