Jeff Demps might be an undrafted rookie free agent, but his decision on which NFL team to play for is being treated like he was a five-time Pro Bowler hitting free agency in March.
That’s understandable for several reasons. First, Demps has appeal because he just returned from London where he was part of the Olympic track team. Second, the New York Jets are involved in this. The Jets have Tim Tebow, Demps’ former college teammate. Anything Tebow and the Jets do these days is magnified by about 1,000 times.
But the NFC South is involved in this one as well. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers also have interest in Demps, who they stayed in contact with throughout the spring and summer.
Now, here’s the latest. The agency that represents Demps tweeted this morning that a decision on what team his client will play for is imminent. The agency’s tweet also said to follow the Twitter account of its marketing agent for an announcement.
That’s what I’m doing now. I’ll be back with any developments as soon as they happen.
