This isn’t an ideal start to an NFL career.

Former Texas A&M wide receiver and five-star recruit Speedy Noil declared for the NFL Draft after his junior season with the Aggies, but he originally went undrafted. He eventually signed as a free agent with the Seattle Seahawks, but Noil’s career took a turn for the worse on Wednesday as he was cut just two weeks after signing.

Noil’s career has been a series of downturns ever since his great freshman season in College Station. He was suspended twice at A&M for a total of three games, and he had an overall drop in production as he was surpassed on the depth chart as both a receiver and a return man.

The good news for Noil is that he holds the highest vertical leap (43.5 inches) from this year’s NFL Combine, and he has the athleticism to get a few more chances with the NFL. However, after being cut, it may be a long road to get a real shot at playing on Sundays.
