Why can't I find him on any of the NFL rosters from 1986 to 2002. Did he ever play a game, since the note states that you must have played at least one game. I could only find 1995 arena where he was 2 for 5, and 91 and 92 Canadian league where he was 23 for 50 one year and 0 for 0 the next. Nothing with the NFL

I found nothing in Pro Football Database about Lee Saltz so he must not have played a game with the Patriots or for any NFL team. I did find an old New York Times article from August 20, 1992 about the Patriots cuts from the squad:

"New England Patriots -- Waived Randy Austin, tight end; Tracy Boyd, guard; Waldy Clark, cornerback; Ilia Jarostchuk, linebacker; Time Kalal, punter; David Key, safety; Lee Saltz, quarterback, and Jeff Smith and John Tappin, wide receivers."

So he must have been in the Patriots training camp in 1992.

I also found a New York Times article dated December 16, 1992 that stated:

"New England PATRIOTS -- Signed Lee Saltz, quarterback, to the practice squad."

So they must have signed him to the practice squad towards the end of the 1992 season.

I also found the information concerning him playing for the San Antonio Riders of the World League of American Football in 1991 and the Sacramento Surge of the WLAF in 1992 (in the previous post it is mentioned as the Canadian Football League but actually is the World League of American Football). But I found nothing about a Lee Saltz on a roster/playing in an NFL game anywhere else.

A Wikipedia article on the Hamilton Tiger Cats of the CFL states:

"The 1990s were marked by financial instability, and constant struggles on the field. Quarterback was a weak spot for the Ti-Cats, as in the first half of the decade had names like Don McPherson, Damon Allen, Timm Rosenbach, Matt Dunigan, Lee Saltz and Todd Dillon taking their turns at the pivot."
