NFL teams are currently in the process of agreeing to terms and signing undrafted rookie free agents. We’ll try to round up as many of them as we can today.

The Tennessee Titans have brokered deals with 15 UDFAs, according to Jim Wyatt of the Nashville Tennessean. Here they are:

Vanderbilt tight end Brandon Barden, Tarleton State quarterback Nick Stephens, USC defensive tackle DaJohn Harris, Alabama center William Vlachos, Sacramento State receiver Chase Deadder, Fordham running back Darryl Whiting, UConn cornerback Gary Wilburn, Southern receiver LaQuinton Evans, Washington receiver Devin Aguilar, Kentucky tackle/guard Chandler Burden, Stephen F. Austin guard George Bias, Cincinnati receiver D.J. Woods, Alabama linebacker Alex Watkins, Texas safety Christian Scott, and Missouri long snapper Beau Brinkley.

The biggest names here are Harris, the defensive tackle from USC, and Vlachos, the short-armed center out of Alabama. Vlachos (pictured) made 40 career starts for the Crimson Tide, never missing a game due to injury. Harris was considered a late-round pick on the football field, but medical concerns knocked him out of the draft.

    Vlachos notable for being perhaps the only Thalidomide baby to make it to the NFL.

    What is it with these teams signing so many UDFA’s immediately after the draft? Talk about looking for a diamond in the ruff…..someone must have lied to some of these clubs….21 here, 16 there….

    What or who are they searching for – the next Jessie Holley?

    Damn Michael Irvin and reality tv.

    @justasecond1

    Yea…some teams find good players as UFA. Wouldn’t you try to sign one of these guys really cheap and hope he breaks out? With the player limit bumped up to 90 for now, there is no reason not to corral as many players as possible.

    @justasecond1:

    Are you familiar with Arian Foster? Yep, he was an undrafted free agent signed by the Texans. So yeah, it’s probably worth it to sign these guys. You never know what might happen.
