The Husker free agents: Who's going where? (Westerkamp update included)

  • Updated

The 2017 NFL Draft is over and Nebraska extended its streak 55 straight years of having at least one player drafted. Only one in this case.

But now those Huskers that didn't hear their names called are starting to hear from NFL teams about priority free agent deals.

Josh Banderas, LB: Lincoln Southwest product is staying somewhat close to home after signing with the Denver Broncos.

Alonzo Moore, WR: Signed a deal with the Kansas City Chiefs.

Terrell Newby, RB: Signed a deal with the Minnesota Vikings.

Brandon Reilly, WR: Another Lincoln Southwest product, Reilly is headed to upstate New York to be part of the Buffalo Bills mafia.

Tommy Armstrong, QB/RB/WR: Is joining Newby in Minnesota with the Vikings. He told the Journal Star they want to look at him at different positions and try out in a camp.

Cethan Carter, TE: The Journal Star was told the tight end picked the Cincinnati Bengals. He later confirmed it on Twitter.

Dylan Utter, OL: Will have a tryout with the Vikings.

Michael Rose-Ivey, LB: No confirmation yet, but it appears Michael Rose-Ivey will have a chance with the Bears according to a tweet from his father.

On Saturday night, Rose-Ivey tweeted this:

Jordan Westerkamp, WR: One of the most decorated wide receivers in Husker history will has agreed to a tryout with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, according to reports.

A December injury to Westerkamp obviously proved incredibly bad timing for the receiver, even delaying his testing appearance in front of scouts.

Sam Hahn: Like Utter, the walk-on offensive lineman will also apparently get a tryout with the Vikings, according to Sean Callahan of HuskerOnline.

Casey Sayles, an Omaha North graduate who played for Frank Solich at Ohio University, also found a free agent home with the Los Angels Rams.
