After being invited to the Detroit Lions rookie camp last weekend, FIU defensive lineman Greg Hickman impressed the Lions enough to earn a contract. Hickman was the only rookie invite to sign a contract after the Lions mini-camp ended this past weekend.
Hickman joins Isame Faciane as the only FIU rookie players to sign NFL contracts this year. Faciane signed with the Minnesota Vikings. Sam Miller was in Washington Redskins rookie camp last weekend but as of this writing Miller has not been offered a contract. Recently, former FIU players Anthony Gaitor (Buccaneers) and Junior Mertile (Giants) were released.
