FAYETTEVILLE The two Arkansas football players who were drafted this year agreed to terms with their NFL team Wednesday.
The Denver Broncos announced they came to terms with third-round defensive lineman McTelvin Agim, and the Washington Post reported seventh-round safety Kamren Curl signed with Washington. Their signings came a day before rookies are expected to report to NFL training camps.
Agim’s four-year contract with the Broncos is worth more than $4.5 million and includes an $857,270 signing bonus, according to the Denver Post. Details of Curl’s deal were not reported.
In four seasons at Arkansas, Agim recorded 145 tackles, including 30.5 for loss and 15 sacks in 47 games. He also forced six fumbles.
Curl declared for the draft after his junior season. He finished his career with 175 tackles, 2 sacks, 2 interceptions, 2 forced fumbles, 15 pass breakups and scored a touchdown in 34 games.
