Free-agent signings are heating up in the NFL several days after the conclusion of the 2014 NFL Draft.

Free-agent signings are heating up in the NFL several days after the conclusion of the 2014 NFL Draft. 

One team making headlines is the San Diego Chargers, who agreed to terms with 17 rookie free agents on Saturday, per UTSanDiego.com's Michael Gehlken: 

"The Chargers had a solid group of undrafted rookies in 2013. There is confidence internally that this class will prove even better. 

"The team agreed to terms with 17 undrafted rookies, including four wide receivers, it announced Saturday. Coach Mike McCoy defined the process to secure the players after the draft as 'controlled chaos.' 

"The group includes former Arizona (Wildcats) safety Alden Darby. He reunites with running back Marion Grice, a college teammate whom the Chargers drafted Saturday in the sixth round. 

"Ex-Auburn (Tigers) cornerback Chris Davis returned a missed field goal versus (the) Alabama (Crimson Tide) for a 109-yard touchdown, perhaps the most memorable play of the 2013 college football season. 

"Michael Flacco also is among the notable additions. The tight end from Division II New Haven is the younger brother of Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco."

Not far behind are the Minnesota Vikings, according to The Minneapolis Star Tribune

"The Vikings annonced Saturday night that they had agreed to terms with 15 rookie free agents. The deal won't become official until they pass physicals and sign deals, so we might not see all of these players at the team's rookie minicamp next weekend. 

"Kain Colter highlights the group, but it is more for what he did in a courtroom than what he did on the football field. Colter was the leader of the effort to unionize at Northwestern. 

"He is a co-founder of the College Athletes Players Association, a labor organization that battled the NCAA by arguing that college athletes should be considered employees and receive the basic protection that goes along with that." 

The other rookie free agents the Vikings agreed to terms with were tight end A.C. Leonard, offensive tackle Antonio Richardson, center Zac Kerin, offensive tackle Pierce Burton, offensive tackle Matt Hall, guard Austin Wentworth, nose tackle Isame Faciane, running back Dominic Williams, defensive end Jack Snyder, wide receiver Erik Lora, defensive end Tyler Scott, wide receiver Donte Foster and defensive end Rakim Cox, per the same update. 

Yet another team which signed a bevy of rookie free agents were the Philadelphia Eagles, who agreed to terms with the same number of players the Vikings did, notes the team's official website

These players are guard Josh Andrews, tight end Blake Annen, guard Karim Barton, wide receiver Kadron Boone, tight end Trey Burton, runing back David Fluellen, cornerback John Fulton, offensive tackle Kevin Graf, guard Donald Hawkins, running back Henry Josey, defensive tackle Wade Kellikipi, safety Daytawion Lowe, defensive end Frank Mays wide receiver Quron Pratt and kicker Carey Spear. 

The Indianapolis Colts also signed former Miami Hurricanes basketball player Erik Swoopes as a tight end on May 11, per ESPN's Mike Wells: 

"The Colts hope they've found the next Antonio Gates or Jimmy Graham. 

"The Colts on Sunday signed Erik Swoope, a former four-year basketball player at the University of Miami, to play tight end. 

 

"The 6-foot-5, 220-pound Swoope, has never played organized football at any level, but he did start 27 of 110 basketball games while with the Hurricanes. 

"His athleticism is what intrigues the Colts, the same way the San Diego Chargers and New Orleans Saints were interested in Gates and Graham, respectively.

"Swoope was one of 19 undrafted free agents the Colts signed Sunday."
