Dexter Wynn, Bradlee Van Pelt and Andre Sommersell aren’t the
only Rams from 2003’s football team with the chance to land on a
Tuesday wide receivers Chris Pittman and Eric Hill and defensive
lineman Bryan Save signed non-drafted free-agent contracts with NFL
teams. Hill and Save will open training camp wearing the blue and
white of the Indianapolis Colts, while Pittman will sport Cleveland
orange and brown as a member of the Browns.
That trio joins Wynn (Philadelphia Eagles), Van Pelt (Denver
Broncos) and Sommersell (Oakland Raiders) as 2003 CSU football
players vying for a spot on their respective teams’ rosters when
training camp opens in June.
Pittman had a breakout year in 2003, finishing second on the
team in receiving with 56 receptions for 739 yards and four
Hill wasn’t a target for Van Pelt early in the year but became
one of the former quarterback’s favorite targets at the end of the
season. In CSU’s 58-13 romp of Brigham Young on Oct. 9, Hill had
three receptions for a career-high 97 yards and two touchdowns. He
finished the year with 18 receptions for 375 yards and led the team
in yards per reception with 20.8.
Save, along with Sommersell, anchored the defensive line for the
2003 Rams, recording 59 tackles and a team-leading seven sacks.
Other Rams hoping to sign contracts as free agents are
linebackers Drew Wood and Eric Pauly.
