Chan Gailey is 68. He’s coached football since 1974. He began in college before moving to the pros, returned to college and then returned to the pros.
He was released by the Seahawks during final roster cuts and ended up spending the majority of that season on the New York Jets’ practice squad before being promoted to the team’s active roster at the end of December. Bryant was waived from New York’s injured reserve in August of 2017. Bryant spent the 2017 season out of football before eventually ending up in the CFL in 2018.
With NFL training camps underway, teams around the league are busy evaluating rosters, settling depth charts and trying to determine which 53 players to carry into the regular season. With 80 players currently eligible for camp rosters, each franchise must part with up to 27 players before the start of Week 1. That will be made more difficult by the lack of a preseason this year.
