NFL notes: Season begins with 20 Cardinal alums on pro rosters

As the NFL regular season kicks off tonight, an eventful summer and preseason for former Stanford players concludes. After the final cuts, 20 former Stanford players made a 53-man roster across 14 different NFL franchises, including four players with Indianapolis and two each with Seattle, Arizona and Cincinnati. In addition, four players (Thomas Keiser, Matthew Masifilo, Chris Owusu and Michael Thomas) were cut but now currently reside on practice squads.
