FARGO, N.D. (AP) — Two standout football players at North Dakota State University are getting a shot at the NFL, even though they didn’t get drafted last week.

The school says former Bison tight end Matt Veldman has signed a free agent contract with the Jacksonville Jaguars. Former running back D.J. McNorton has been invited to the Washington Redskins minicamp for rookies and undrafted free agents.

McNorton is from Channelview, Texas. He finished his NDSU career sixth on the team’s all-time rushing list with just under 3,000 yards.

Veldman is from Becker, Minn. He started all 15 games during NDSU’s run to the NCAA Football Championship Subdivision title, catching a career-high 26 passes for 331 yards and three touchdowns last season.
