The group was highlighted by seventh-round WR Jeremy Ebert, along with undrafted defensive lineman Justin Francis, wide receiver Matt Roark and offensive linemen Jeremiah Warren and Markus Zusevics.

Pretty ridiculous for a WR to fail a physical. Zusevics makes sense coming off the injury.

Sounds like Ebert's is at least football related, since he is on PUP as opposed to NFI. I'm more skeptical about the others.

I read that Ebert is still dealing with that leg injury from mini-camp. Not so ridiculous imo

From what I recall the physical requirements were different based on position.

This. I can't imagine many of those UDFA's hanging around for long if they couldn't pass the conditioning test.

Dang, not good seeing my boy Jeremiah Warren on that list. I had my hopes up for him making the team this year as a reserve.

20 60 yard sprints for WRs, I believe.

It's more about endurance than speed.
