DeAndre Presley has always had a tendency to land on his feet. He did just that on Monday as the former Appalachian State University football players continues his dream of making a  National

Football League roster. Presley, who went undrafted before he signed a free-agent contract with the San Diego Chargers, has landed with a new team. Released by the Chargers Friday, Presley has found a home with the Miami Dolphins as a member of their practice squad. He was added on Monday.
And Mark LeGree, who has been well traveled since his release from Seattle, has landed wit the Atlanta Falcons as a member of their practice squad. LeGree, who was taken by the Seahawks in the fifth-round of the NFL Draft in April of 2011, was cut by the Chicago Bears Friday. LeGree has also been with Phoenix Cardinals, the San Francisco 49ers and the New York Jets.
And former Chattanooga quarterback B.J. Coleman was added to the Green Bay Packers practice squad Monday afternoon. The 2012-13 NFL seasonn officially begins Wednesday night with the Dallas Cowboys taking on the New York Giants at MetLife Stadium in the Meadowlands. Former ASU wide receiver Brian Quick, the highest draft choice in school history (with the 33rd pick in this year's draft) will play his first regular-season game with the St. Louis Rams Sunday at Ford Field against the Detroit Lions.
