Sturgeon Bay, Wi (NNCNOW.com) --- Former University of Minnesota-Duluth (UMD) offensive lineman Jake Bscherer was cut this past Saturday by the Seattle Seahawks, but he still has high hopes of getting another chance at an NFL training camp this summer.

Bscherer spent just three days in camp with the Seahawks before being cut, but he was told the move was more based on business than his on-the-field performance.

"When I met with my offensive line coach, he said he thought I played well," Bscherer said Monday via telephone. "It's part of the business, and he said that he was just informed himself that I was being released."

Even with the setback, Bscherer is taking it in stride and hopes to again be in training camp with an NFL team this season.

"They said when I left that there's a good chance they would re-sign me in the next week or so," Bscherer said. "I'm working out and trying to stay in top shape, whether it's for them or another team."

Bscherer played just the 2012 season with UMD, earning all-Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference (NSIC) first team honors and helping the Bulldogs run the third-highest scoring offense in NCAA Division II.
