Five former Lakers prepare for NFL season

As the NFL regular season kicks off, five previous Grand Valley State University football players hope to make a difference for their respective teams.
More and more GVSU players are finding their way onto NFL teams as the years pass by, as evidenced by four players who joined a 53-man active roster this season: cornerback Brandon Carr of the Dallas Cowboys, linebacker Dan Skuta of the Dallas Cowboys, offensive tackle Cameron Bradfield of the Jacksonville Jaguars and offensive guard Tim Lelito of the New Orleans Saints.
Rookie wide receiver Charles Johnson begins his NFL career on the practice squad with the Green Bay Packers.
