Congratulations to Dom DeCicco and Henry Hynoski. Now that the NFL Lockout is finished, NFL teams are permitted to sign undrafted free agents. Today is the first day that players can officially sign
DeCicco will get a chance with the Chicago Bears.
“I knew my time would eventually come,” he said, pointing out that waiting for the lockout to end was difficult.
“The only (thing) I can compare it to is when you play a bad game and you want that next week to come so bad so you can prove yourself.”
DeCicco, who played on one PIAA champion and two WPIAL title winners at Thomas Jefferson, said he had calls from the Steelers, Bills, Bears and Saints on Monday. He chose the Bears because they brought him to Chicago for a pre-draft visit and he developed a relationship with linebackers coach Bob Babich of Aliquippa and scout Rex Hogan.
“It made the most sense, even though they weren’t offering the most money,” he said.
Hynoski will take a shot with the New Jersey Giants — after a little debate.
