  05/15/21 - *Trill WilliamsJr/2021, Syracuse, 6-0, 208 (DS#18 CB) + More +

  The New Orleans Saints cut former Syracuse defensive back Trill Williams on Friday, indicating that the standout had failed his physical with the team. The team said that both Williams and Wisconsin defensive back Eric Burrell had failed their physicals and opted to bring in Louisiana-Lafayette DB Deuce Wallace instead. Williams was expected by many to be Syracuse's third player taken during the NFL Draft a few weeks ago but instead he went undrafted, signing a free agent contract with New Orleans. Williams played two-plus seasons with Syracuse and was known for his play-making, including a game-ending overtime play against Wake Forest in the final game of his sophomore season, when he tore the ball away from a Wake Forest receiver and returned the fumble for a sudden-death touchdown. - The Post-Standard

  05/03/21 - *Andre CiscoJr/2021, Syracuse, 6-0, 216 (DS#4 FS) + More +

  If someone would've told Andre Cisco during his final two years of high school football at IMG Academy in Florida that he would be returning to the Sunshine State four years later as a member of the Jacksonville Jaguars, he wouldn't have believed them. "He would've said when, where and how? Because it was definitely a long road for me," said Cisco, who became the 65th pick in the 2021 NFL Draft on Friday night. "It wasn't clear. It was hard to say how it was going to happen, but I'll say going to IMG is what opened up my eyes to me believing in myself and making that next step to say I'm dedicated."

Cisco, a 6-foot-1, 216-pound safety, became the highest-drafted player for the Syracuse football program since 2013 on Friday night. He was in Atlanta surrounded by a group of family and friends when he got the life-changing call. "It means everything. This is exactly what I've been working for," Cisco said during a press conference shortly after he was selected. "I'm somebody that had an unfortunate incident this past season and was still fortunate enough to get drafted this early, so I'm blessed in a lot of different ways." - The Post-Standard

Simmons is the second player to transfer to Syracuse during the offseason, joining former Mississippi State quarterback Garrett Shrader. - The Post-Standard

  A Syracuse football defensive lineman is seeking a transfer after spending less than a year with the program. Kevin Lemieux, a 6-foot-4, 252-pound defensive lineman from Ashburnham, Massachusetts, has put his name in the NCAA transfer portal, which enables other schools to recruit him. Lemieux's decision to explore his options is unusual in that it comes less than a year after he arrived on campus. The Orange players returned to campus two weeks ago for the start of their winter strength program. Spring practice, when players jockey for position on the depth chart, has yet to start up. Lemieux, who turns 20 next month, did not play as a freshman last fall and has four seasons of eligibility remaining. He was the first player to commit to SU's 2020 recruiting class. - The Post-Standard
