Pittsburgh (KDKA)- Now that the NFL lockout is over, undrafted free agents were able to try to sign with NFL teams.
Two former Pitt Panther players did just that.
Fullback Henry Hynoski and safety Dom DeCicco are now officially members of the NFL.
Hynoski signed on with the NY Giants while DeCicco inked a deal with the Chicago Bears.
Tony Greco of Panther Digest reports that DeDicco received interest from the Steelers but decided on the Bears.
The Giants are a good fit for Hynoski considering their one of the few teams that still use a fullback.
There was some question as to what position DeCicco would play in the NFL but he’ll try to make the Bears as a safety.
One other free agent note, former West Virginia running back Noel Devine will sign a deal with the Atlanta Falcons.
