Dozens of players who have been on NFL rosters try to show off for teams.

The NFL will hold its first ever veteran combine, where players who have been on NFL rosters at some point can try and show off for the 32 franchises. It will occur on Sunday, March 22 at the Arizona Cardinals team facility. Some well-known players will be there, like Michael Sam, who has made a name for himself by becoming the first openly gay professional football player.

A couple of players who some believed would be there are not. Quarterbacks Vince Young and Tim Tebow will not be in attendance. He was invited, but passed on the opportunity. Young was not invited.

Cardinals fans might recognize some names on the list. Deveric Gallington was once in training camp with the Cardinals. Deveron Carr was a Sun Devil. Everrette Thompson was also once on Arizona's roster. Linebacker Thomas Keiser was a waiver claim to start last season, but quickly found the bench, eventually getting released. Vic So'oto was on the Cardinals roster in 2013 for a game before landing on injured reserve. Lastly, running back Michael Bush was with the Cardinals for a couple of weeks last year.
