Six Ole Miss Rebels signed free-agent deals with NFL teams on Saturday following the 2013 NFL Draft.
Uriah Grant signed with the Jacksonville Jaguars, A.J. Hawkins and E.J. Epperson signed with the Kansas City Chiefs and Gilbert Pena signed with the Green Bay Packers. Gerald Rivers, who last played for the Rebels in 2011, signed with the St. Louis Rams.
And one of the feel-good stories of the free-agent signings is former Ole Miss men’s basketball player Murphy Holloway, who was signed by the Baltimore Ravens as a tight end.
