Two Texas Tech Football Players Sign Non-Drafted Free Agent Contracts
The 2015 NFL Draft wrapped up Saturday afternoon in Chicago, and the flurry on non-drafted free agent signings began.
No Texas Tech players were drafted, but two players signed non-drafted free agent contracts.
Wide receiver and two-sport athlete Bradley Marquez (pictured) signed a contract with the St. Louis Rams. Marquez led the Red Raiders in receiving in 2014, catching 65 passes for 821 yards and 10 touchdowns. His 10 touchdown receptions led the Big 12 Conference and ranked 12th nationally. Marquez was the only Big 12 wide receiver to snag three touchdown passes in two different games in 2014.
Linebacker V.J. Fehoko signed a contract with the Cleveland Browns. Fehoko recorded 66 tackles in his one season as a Red Raider after transferring from Utah where he played from 2011-13. Fehoko ended the 2014 season ranked fifth on the team in tackles.
More Red Raiders are expected to sign non-drafted free agent contracts in the coming weeks.
NFL teams will meet in mini-camps later this month.
