Two former Kansas State football players signed free-agent contracts with NFL teams today.
Jeffrey Fitzgerald, a defensive lineman who led the Wildcats with seven sacks last season, signed with the Kansas City Chiefs.
Brandon Banks, a wide receiver/return specialist, landed with the Washington Redskins.
Both were standout players for the Wildcats, but neither heard their name called in last month’s NFL Draft. Nonetheless, they will each now have the chance to make a professional roster.
