Stony Brook University is going to be well-represented during this year’s NFL training camp.
Former Seawolves Timon Parris (offensive tackle) and Conner Davis (tight end) both were signed by NFL teams on Friday. Parris landed with the Miami Dolphins and Davis joined the Cleveland Browns.
Both players were in the NFL last season, with Parris spending time with both the Atlanta Falcons and Washington Football Team and Davis with the New York Jets.
The news comes as a trio of Stony Brook University alumni inked undrafted free agent deals after the 2021 draft: defensive back Augie Contressa (Tampa Bay Buccaneers), defensive back TJ Morrison (Las Vegas Raiders) and defensive tackle Sam Kamara (Chicago Bears).
There’s also defensive back Chris Cooper (Denver Broncos) and defensive back Gavin Heslop (Seattle Seahawks), two more former Seawolves who are also under contract with NFL teams.
Stony Brook’s presence in NFL has increasingly grown with 17 former Seawolves earning opportunities over the last four years. The first Seawolf to be activated to an NFL game day roster came in 2015 when tight end Will Tye suited up with the New York Giants.
