Stanford in the NFL: Former Cardinal kick off NFL season

Thomas J. Russo-USA TODAY Sports

While the 2016 Stanford team was playing Kansas State in their season opener, some familiar faces were on the sidelines cheering them on: Joshua Garnett, Shayne Skov, and Devon Cajuste all made an appearance at the game.

However, you shouldn’t get used to seeing Cajuste in the Bay Area. He was recently cut by the 49ers and will join the Green Bay Packers practice roster. In Green Bay, he will be playing with Ty Montgomery, Blake Martinez, and Kyle Murphy. Their first game is on September 11th against the Jaguars.
