Ryan Hoag, who was on the Vikings training camp roster in 2004 but didn’t make the 53-man cut, has kept his football career alive since his time with the Purple and his newest opportunity will come with the Omaha UFL franchise.
The team announced today that it has drafted 20 players from the other 4 UFL franchises, including Hoag and former Arizona Cardinals 1st round DT Wendell Bryant. Omaha will be coached by former Boston College Head Coach and Tampa Bay Buccaneers offensive coordinator Jeff Jagodzinski.
Hoag, a graduate of Gustavus Adolphus College in St. Peter, MN (my alma mater – I had to get that in), was chosen with the final pick of the 2003 NFL Draft by the Oakland Raiders and has also spent time with the NY Giants, Washington Redskins, Vikings and Jacksonville Jaguars in the NFL. He’s also been with the Edmonton Eskimos and NY Sentinels.
