Kumerow is a 6’5, 210 pound receiver with a 4.52s 40 yard dash and 6.90s three cone drill out of Wisconsin-Whitewater. He just happens to be the cousin of Joey Bosa, the star pass rusher of the Los Angeles Chargers and the Patriots week 8 opponent. Kumerow spent the past two seasons on the Bengals practice squad, but battled injuries and was placed on the injure reserve with an ankle injury during training camp.
Williams was selected 240th in the 2017 NFL Draft by the Jaguars out of the University of Miami. The 5’10, 260 pound Williams runs a 4.73s 40 yard dash set weight room records for the Hurricanes, but was injured/waived by the Jaguars during roster cuts.
