Four Former Miners Earn NFL Free Agent Tryouts
Now that the lockout is over, NFL teams have to cram five months of an off-season into three weeks! Four undrafted UTEP Miners finally got the phone calls they were waiting for. Quarterback Trevor Vittatoe, running back Donald Buckram, wide receiver Kris Adams, and offensive lineman Rod Huntley all received invites to NFL camps.
Vittatoe and Adams will be trying out for the Bears. Buckram will try out for the Cleveland Browns, and Huntley will try and stick on the roster in Minnesota. It is a tough road for undrafted free agents, but we wish these former Miners the best of luck.
