Today, the National Football League held the 2017 Supplemental Draft. It started, and concluded, in less time than it took you to read this sentence.
There were only two players eligible for this year’s Supplemental Draft. They were defensive lineman Tavares Bingham of Georgia Military College and running back Marques Rodgers of Western New Mexico University. Neither one of them were selected today, so they both immediately become free agents who are eligible to sign with any team.
It has been a while since the Minnesota Vikings made a selection in the Supplemental Draft. Nearly thirty years, as a matter of fact. They used a fifth-round pick in the 1988 Supplemental Draft to select South Carolina wide receiver Ryan Bethea. Bethea would go on to not play a single NFL snap.
So, if you wanted a full update of this year’s NFL Supplemental Draft results, you just got it. We can safely go ahead and start our countdown clocks for the 2018 NFL Supplemental Draft, which is slated before. . .look, seriously, I don’t know. But someone does, I’m sure.
