The nine players signed were WR Joe Anderson, OLB Deion Barnes, TE Brandon Bostick, OG Jarvis Harrison, OLB/FB Julian Howsare, TE Wes Saxton, CB Kevin Short, NT Deon Simon and OLB Julian Sanford.
Barnes, Harrison and Simon may have the best chance to make next season’s 53-man roster as linebacker Calvin Pace may not be back in 2016, Harrison is a candidate to compete at OG or possibly OT where he played in spot duty for Texas A&M in 2014.
The possible departure of current NT Damon Harrison could open the door for Simon, a 7th round draft choice out of Northwest State (Louisiana), to compete for a spot.
