With the NFL Supplemental Draft coming to a close and Terrelle Pryor a member of the Oakland Raiders, the other five eligible players are now available to sign as free agents.
That means Torez Jones, Caleb King, Keenan Mace, Mike McAdoo and Tracy Wilson will be hitting the phones and the road to workout in hopes of making an NFL roster before the regular season.
Caleb King was allegedly on the Cleveland Browns’ radar, especially with the recent turf toe injury to recent FA signing Brandon Jackson. King, a 5* high school standout, never lived up to his potential at Georgia. He played behind Knowshon Moreno, was riddled with injuries and had academic difficulties ultimately leading to being named ineligible for the 2011 season (the reason behind his entry into the Supplemental Draft). King has the tools to stick around in the league, and will likely get a shot on a preseason roster somewhere.
McAdoo is another name of interest for the Browns. After racking up four sacks in the Spring Game in 2010, he was ineligible for the season and was looking for redemption. According to Aaron Wilson of Scout.com:
“Last year, it was just hard because just waking up every day knowing you can’t play the game that you love the most,” McAdoo said.
According to reports, McAdoo was found guilty by the student honor court of submitting a paper that didn’t properly credit someone else’s work on a works cited page.
“I’m not a bad person,” McAdoo said. "I love the game of football. The people that I hung out with and associated with they assumed I was just like them guys.
“It was guilt by association. I’m a good guy. They can check my background and know that I don’t have any issues off the field. They just have to get to know me.”
At 6’7", 245 lbs, McAdoo could work in the Browns’ new 4-3 scheme under Dick Jauron and would join former teammate and second round draft pick Greg Little. Obviously, the “character” tag and a year off the field has given teams pause, but there is little doubt that a player with McAdoo’s skillset deserves a workout, especially on a team that isn't exactly chock full of great defensive linemen.
