As the NFL Draft wrapped up Saturday, the rush on free agents heated up around the country - but has been slow thus far for former Boise State football players.

Cornerback Jerrell Gavins said he signed a rookie tryout contract with the Tampa Bay Bucs. His tryout will be Friday and Saturday this week.

Other Boise State players were still waiting on a place to play or did not return phone calls and text messages.

Three Idaho players will participate in NFL camps starting this week.
Punter Bobby Cowan signed with the Oakland Raiders. Wide Receiver Justin Veltung earned a tryout with the Seattle Seahawks, and safety Gary Walker signed with the Super Bowl champion Baltimore Ravens.

Two former Idaho State Bengals will continue their football careers in NFL camps. Tight end Josh Hill signed with the New Orleans Saints and receiver Rodrick Rumble signed with the Indianapolis Colts.
