Gerry was picked up in the fifth round of the 2017 NFL Draft by the Philedalphia Eagles, but did not make the final 53-man roster.
Reilly was fighting to make the roster on the Buffalo Bills after going undrafted. Both Reilly and Gerry are expected to make their team's practice squads.
Nothing's gonna keep me down..I can guarantee you that

Former Huskers running back Terrell Newby was cut from the Vikings roster, while tight end Sam Cotton was cut from the Patriots.
NFL teams have cut Terrell Newby (Vikings), Sam Cotton (Pats) and Brandon Reilly (Bills). I doubt Reilly is without a team for long.
