Two more former UConn players headed to NFL camps

It was well documented that Geremy Davis got the call from the NFL when the New York Giants made him the 186th player taken in the NFL draft.

A couple of other receivers who started their college career at UConn will also be heading to NFL training camp.

Former UConn receiver Tebucky Jones, who had seven catches during the 2012 and 2013 seasons, will be heading to rookie camp with the Tennessee Titans.

Jones had more than 1,000 receiving yards in both of his seasons at Fordham and is the team's career leader with 2,346 receiving yards even though he played for the Rams for only two seasons.

Andrew Opoku, who had 10 tackles as a reserve linebacker at UConn during the 2011, moved to receiver when he transferred to Delaware. According to Aaron Wilson of the Baltimore Sun, Opoku was invited to camp with the Baltimore Ravens.

I haven't heard anything about Shakim Phillips getting an invite for rookie camp which is somewhat surprising.
