Pitt and WPIAL Alumni On 2020 Opening Day NFL Rosters

Pitt and WPIAL Alumni On 2020 Opening Day NFL Rosters

After much concern and doubt, the 2020 NFL season will kickoff this Thursday as the defending Super Bowl champion Kansas City Chiefs take on the Houston Texans.

This past weekend was big for many players as NFL teams set their initial 53 man rosters. As per usual, those rosters were comprised of former Pitt Panthers and alumni of the WPIAL.

Here are the former Pitt and WPIAL players that are on NFL 53-man roster or practice squads:
