Throughout NFL training camps, 41 former Notre Dame student-athletes participated in team drills and games. At the end of camp, 25 (23 who finished their career at ND) former Irish football players made active NFL rosters, while three were put on the injured reserve and two were signed to the practice squad. As waived players sign new deals with squads on the active roster and practice squad we will update this document. Below, you will find all the former Notre Dame student-athletes on an NFL active roster, injured reserve, practice squad or the point in which they were waived during training camp.

    It’s somewhat confusing that there are people who are on both lists (the 53-man roster and the waived at 53-man roster lists). I would add a note on the waived lists to show that they were signed by another team to make it more clear.
