NFL rosters are set; where did the Cougs end up?

James Snook-USA TODAY Sports

There is a rumor going around Pullman that Washington State is considering fielding a football team. We have been unable to confirm this rumor, so instead we're going to focus the weekly trivia on the players of the past.

This weekend was roster cutdown time in the NFL as teams trimmed their rosters to reach the 53-man limits. That put a few former Cougar football players squarely on the bubble. For some, it turned out really well as they made the active rosters. For others, it turned out well as they secured a spot on the practice squad. And for some, they will have to wait and hope to catch on somewhere else.

Q1: Name the five Cougars who made active rosters, or were included on injured reserve/PUP lists in the NFL this season and their teams.

Q2: Name the three Cougars who made practice squad rosters for 2016 and their teams.

Q3: Who was the last player to play college football at Washington State and make the Pro Bowl.
