Several Wyoming Cowboys Signed to NFL Free-Agent Deals

April 27, 2009


The Wyoming Cowboys had four individuals sign free-agent contracts with NFL teams following Sunday's NFL Draft and a fifth received an invitation for a tryout.

The four Wyoming free agents are:

  • Kyle Howard, OL, San Francisco 49ers
  • Mike Juergens, LB, Carolina Panthers
  • Devin Moore, RB, Seattle Seahawks
  • Wynel Seldon, RB, Washington Redskins

    The fifth Cowboy who was invited to a tryout was long snapper Danny Dutmer, who was invited to workout for the Cleveland Browns.

    Howard was an Honorable Mention All-Mountain West selection this past year. He started the last 40 consecutive games of his college career for the Cowboys. Howard was a very versatile offensive lineman, starting at right guard as a senior and right tackle as a junior.

    Juergens was a dynamic performer as an outside linebacker. He recorded 56 tackles as a senior and led Wyoming in sacks with 5.0. Juergens was a two-year starter for the Cowboys.

    Moore ended his career as Wyoming's career rushing leader with 2,963 career yards. He ranked 19th in the nation in rushing as a senior (108.4 yards per game), and was also an outstanding kick returner and receiver out of the backfield. He ranked No. 7 in the NCAA in all-purpose yards in 2008, averaging 167.3 yards per game. Moore earned First Team All-Mountain West Conference honors as a senior.

    Seldon concluded his career No. 3 on the Wyoming career rushing list with 2,672 career rushing yards. Seldon was a physical runner and an excellent receiver.

    Dutmer was Wyoming's long snapper from the very first game of his true freshman season, and he started as the Cowboys' long snapper for four seasons.
