Michigan Wolverines UDFA Tracker

Tracking the latest happenings with Michigan's UDFAs.

Gregory Shamus

With the conclusion of the NFL Draft on Saturday, the next step is tracking where the next batch of undrafted free agent rookies are headed to try and find a spot in the NFL.

Michigan had three Wolverines drafted over the weekend in Taylor Lewan, Michael Schofield and Jeremy Gallon.

However, there are a plethora of players on Michigan's roster who are trying to find other ways of getting to the next level.

Below is our tracker of where Michigan's UDFA are headed:

Thomas Gordon

Former Michigan safety Thomas Gordon is headed to the Giants. I also reported it on Twitter. Although the status of a contract has not been confirmed, he is being reported as signing an UDFA contract.

EDIT: I have confirmed with Gordon's agency that he did indeed sign an UDFA contract with the Giants.

Jibreel Black

Former Michigan defensive tackle Jibreel Black is apparently headed to the Pittsburgh Steelers as a minicamp invite. Which is essentially a glorified tryout.

Black appeared in 52 games during his time at Michigan, 16 of them were starts.

Cameron Gordon

Former linebacker Cam Gordon is headed to New England with fellow teammate Jeremy Gallon. Presumably as a camp tryout.

Originally a wide receiver, Gordon was faced with two position switches that lead him to become an outside linebacker. He appeared in 45 games during his time at Michigan and made 15 starts at linebacker. He was also named Academic All-Big Ten three times.

Fitzgerald Toussaint

Former running back Fitzgerald Toussaint is headed to Baltimore for a tryout per MLive's Nick Baumgardner.

Toussaint appeared in 38 games for the Wolverines and started in 32 of them. He also became the 21st Wolverine to eclipse 2,000 yards rushing in a career.

EDIT: confirmed with Toussaint's agent that Toussaint has a very good chance at landing a contract with the Ravens at the end of the weekend.

Quinton Washington

I have confirmed with former defensive lineman Quinton Washington's agency that he is headed to the Oakland Raiders on a minicamp tryout.

Washington appeared in 49 games for the Wolverines during his career and made 16 starts. Washington also had a speech impediment that he has struggled with throughout college. He delivered an emotional speech during the Michigan football bust.

Courtney Avery

I broke the news via Twitter that Courtney Avery is headed to San Francisco for a minicamp tryout. Per his agent, 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh was "instrumental" in getting him there.

Avery appeared in 50 games during his Wolverine career and made 15 starts at defensive back.
