The full list of players who tried out includes:

  1. DB Blake Countess
  2. TE Jordan Franks
  3. LB DeMarquis Gates
  4. RB Javon Leake
  5. WR DaMarkus Lodge
  6. TE Jared Rice
  7. DB Prince Smith

Countess, 27, was taken in the sixth round out of Auburn in 2016 by the Eagles. He was cut loose coming out of the preseason and later signed on to the Rams practice squad.

The Eagles later claimed Countess off waivers from the Rams before waiving him during the preseason with an injury settlement. From there, he caught on with the Jets in October, but New York eventually opted to release Countess in March.

In 2019, Countess was active for six games, but did not record a statistic.
