— A pair of former Arkansas football players finally have an NFL training camp home.

More than three months after failing to hear their names called in the NFL Draft, offensive lineman Ray Dominguez (Green Bay Packers) and cornerback Ramon Broadway (San Diego Chargers) agreed to rookie free agent deals Tuesday.

NFL teams were able to begin signing free agents Tuesday, one day after the NFL Players Association and the league’s owners agreed to a new collective bargaining agreement to end a 132-day lockout between the two sides.

Dominguez will join former Arkansas tight end D.J. Williams in the Packers’ camp on Friday. Williams was drafted by Green Bay in the fifth round of the NFL Draft in April.

Williams, quarterback Ryan Mallett (New England Patriots) and offensive lineman DeMarcus Love (Minnesota Vikings) were former Arkansas players taken in the draft. Drafted players can begin signing contracts with their respective teams Tuesday.
