Several Bearcats signed as priority free agents

Korey Cunningham was the only Bearcat player drafted, but he won’t be the only one to have a chance at keeping their NFL dreams alive. As proof in 2017, Tion Green, Eric Wilson and Deyshawn Bond all made their respective rosters after being signed as free agents so for the Bearcats who are going this route all isn’t lost.

Mike Boone

Running back Mike Boone signed with the Minnesota Vikings. Boone will have a shot to be a teammate of Eric Wilson. Wilson is a linebacker who had the same fate as Boone, but made the 53 man roster. Boone is a very versatile player who if given a fair shot can make a roster.

Linden Stephens

Cornerback Linden Stephens signed with the New Orleans Saints. Stephens would’ve been the strongest corner at the combine with the reps he hit at Cincinnati’s Pro Day with 24 (I know it was in the mid 20’s sorry if I’m wrong). He played all four years in the black and red, he is a physical corner who isn’t afraid to hit you.

Headed to the Saints!! All God’s plan!

Lyndon Johnson

Defensive Lineman Lyndon Johnson signed with the Jacksonville Jaguars. Johnson is 6’6” and 279 pounds that alone is intriguing to NFL teams.

Devin Gray

Wide receiver Devin Gray signed with the Atlanta Falcons. Gray is a speedster who has the ability to make dynamic plays. His 2017 season wasn’t as strong as his 2016 season, but when fully healthy he can help a team. You can’t teach speed and Gray has that to burn.

Headed to the Atlanta Falcons, thank you for the opportunity and thank you everyone for all the support !

Good luck to these four Bearcats and the others that may be brought in for workouts or training camp.

Kendall Calhoun

Offensive lineman Kendall Calhoun was invited to the Houston Texas Rookie Camp.

Managing Editor of Bearcat Insider, I've been on the BCI team the last couple of years. I made the final four in the Biggest Big East Fan contest in 2011, I covered UC also on Cincy on the Prowl. I'm just a lefty trying to get buckets in this game called life Van Exel style.
