Let’s take a look at how our favorite former Badgers are doing as training camps get started around the NFL.

NFL training camps have been getting started over the past few days and there are already some updates on former Wisconsin Badgers players throughout the league. With uncertainty surrounding the college football season, the NFL is likely to be the only football we get this year. Let’s take a look at how the players we’ll be cheering on are doing!

  • Let’s get the awful news out of the way first: Miami Dolphins OLB Vince Biegel is out for the season with a torn ACL.

Biegel found a home in Miami last season, starting 10 games and recording 59 tackles, 2.5 sacks, 13 QB hits and one interception. In his second year with the Dolphins he was primed for a big season and this news is a major bummer. We wish Biegel a speedy recovery and can’t wait to see him out on the field next year.

  • Another Badgers linebacker is making waves in Florida. New Jacksonville Jaguars OLB Joe Schobert seems to be fitting in well in his first season in the Sunshine State.

Joe the Show signed with Jacksonville this offseason after four successful seasons in Cleveland and will be looking to help the Jags back to the playoffs this year.

  • Rookie running backs are a often tough to evaluate. One who isn’t is new Indianapolis Colts RB Jonathan Taylor. He’s good and it is evident every time he touches the ball.

Sigh, I already miss watching him run for the Badgers so much. Go Colts, I guess.
