Lutzenkirchen and Blake were both undrafted free agent who signed with St. Louis immediately following April’s NFL Draft.
Blake led the Tigers in receptions last season, with 51 catches for 789 yards with three touchdowns. Lutzenkirchen had 15 catches for 139 yards in six games as his senior season was cut short by hip surgery.
Linebacker Daren Bates, also undrafted, is currently still with St. Louis.
Former Auburn players Onterio McCalebb and John Sullen are still on the roster for the Cincinnati Bengals. Both undrafted rookies have been shown during HBO’s Hard Knocks program chronicling the Bengals training camp.
Only Corey Lemonier was drafted out of Auburn last year, a third-round selection by the San Francisco 49ers.
