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

NFL roster.

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

touchdowns.

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.
