Blessed to receive an invite to the East west shrine game! Can't wait to play Jan 21st on the #NFLnetwork #BlessedAndHighlyFavored pic.twitter.com/X8y5YhyAwL— Paul Magloire (@P_MAGLOIRE) January 6, 2017
Magloire has been training in Florida since Arizona’s season ended, and it seems like he is starting to garner some more attention from NFL scouts.
In 2016, Magloire ended up leading the team in tackles (81) despite not getting a full compliment of snaps in the middle part of the season and missing a game due to a groin injury. He also ended up half a sack shy of the team lead.
The East-West Shrine Game will be played on January 21st at 1 PM MT, and will be broadcast on NFL Network. It will be played at Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg, FL. As of right now, there are 17 players listed on the West roster from the Pac-12 outside of Magloire and Griffey.
