Posted on April 25, 2010 by Patrick Moran

UB LOGOA trio of University at Buffalo football players who didn’t get selected in the NFL draft will get their chance at NFL stardom as undrafted free agents.  Wide receiver Naaman Roosevelt, safety Mike Newtown and tight end Jesse Rack were all signed to deals by teams over the past 24 hours.

As we first reported Thursday morning, the Buffalo Bills jumped on Roosevelt after  he was not selected in the draft. Roosevelt caught 70 passes for 954 yards and nine touchdowns as a senior last year.  As a junior he set school records with 104 catches for 1,402 yards and 14 touchdowns.

Newton was signed by the Indianapolis Colts.  Newton will join former teammates Drew Willy and Jamie Richards with the Colts.

Rack was signed by AFC East rival New York Jets.
