The Spring League is an opportunity for players to show they deserve a second chance in the pros.
Ever since the NFL agreed to a partnership with the developmental league, we've seen some big names sign up to show they still have what it takes. While Johnny Manziel certainly will take the majority of the headlines, some New England fans will notice some familiar faces on the recently announced rosters.

Even if you are a die-hard Patriot fan, this probably means absolutely nothing to you.
None of these players are known for their times in New England, but still made stops in Foxborough at one time or another. Sudeld is actually the most seasoned Patriot amongst the three, playing a whopping 45 offensive snaps before he was released after three games.
While Beauharnais is the only one who was drafted by New England after the team decided to snag him in the seventh round of the 2013 draft, he only played one defensive snap. Schwenke brings up the rear, with a brief stint on the Patriots' practice squad for two months before the team parted ways with the guard.
There you have it, Pats fans. If you're looking for players to root for and don't want to get on the Comeback Season train, you have your guys to follow.
