Appalachian State's LeGree among cut FCS players

Seventeen of the 21 players who were player limit over the weekend.

The highest drafted player who was cut was former Appalachian State safety Mark LeGree, taken in the fifth round by the Seattle Seahawks.

LeGree was disappointed by his performance during training camp and felt the NFL lockout hurt him because it denied rookies of most offseason activities.

The 6-foot, 210-pound LeGree was a first-team All-America in each of his final three seasons.

Other drafted FCS players cut from NFL teams were outside linebacker Markell Carter (Central Arkansas) by the New England Patriots, fullback Shane Bannon (Yale) by the Kansas City Chiefs and Frank Kearse (Alabama A&M) by the Miami Dolphins.
