Anybody who has ever felt the pressure of going in for a job interview should empathize with the NFL player who finds out he's been cut before the regular season.

Not only have these players been putting their health on the line for a job that often comes with little glamour—if you're fighting just for a roster spot, odds are you're not fighting for a starting spot—their big auditions take place on TV in stadiums full of thousands of fans.
