The NFL dipped in their toes in the Maine Black Bear Pool in 2010, and this year 3 players got out.
While no players were drafted, Old Town native and Offensive Lineman Tyler Eastman signed a free agent contract after the draft with the Kansas City Chiefs. Eastman joins fellow Black Bear and former CAA Defensive Player of the Year Jovan Belcher.
Temple, Maine native Jordan Stevens was invited to the Detroit Lions Mini Camp. Stevens was one of the team captains and had a stellar Senior year.
The latest Maine signing sends Wide Receiver Landis Williams to Denver, signing a free agent deal with the Broncos.
Maine DB Brandon McLaughlin has been invited to Cleveland Browns mini-camp, and Jhamal Fluellen, 2008 grad, is headed north of the border to the CFL.
Congratulations to all the 2010 Maine Black Bears who will follow their dream to the NFL.
More congratulations to Coach Jack Cosgrove and all of his former and current staff members who continue to produce NFL talent year after year.
