4. Breiden Fehoko also cut, but signed to the practice squad.

Fehoko became a bit of a Hard Knocks start himself last week with his enthusiasm and skills. The Haka dance earned him quite a lot of buzz throughout the team and on social media. In terms of his defensive tackle skills, his strength and confidence earned praise from players like Melvin Ingram.

Like Bradwell, Fehoko was brought into Telesco’s offense to receive the news. He ended up getting a practice squad spot and got some praise from the LA Chargers’ GM. Telesco really liked his quickness and footwork, which he has mentioned a few times with some of his favorite Chargers’ players.

Lynn’s office is the next stop after Telesco’s. While Fehoko’s run defense was on point, Lynn mentions that he has a lot to improve on as a pass rusher. That was one of the reasons that the former LSU tiger did go undrafted, but he seems to be getting better. Making the practice squad is no small feat.

A former Texas Tech Red Raider himself, Lynn asked about how he and his family wound up in Lubbock at Texas Tech. He also busted Fehoko’s chops about being a traitor and transferring to LSU. Even in some of the minor moments of the show, Lynn’s charisma and levity have never failed to shine through the screen.
