MOUNT PLEASANT - Three former Central Michigan football players have agreed to terms on NFL free-agent deals.

Bryan Anderson (New England Patriots), Josh Gordy (Jacksonville Jaguars) and Frank Zombo (Green Bay Packers) all will be taking part in NFL rookie camps.

Five members of the 2009 Chippewas are now part of NFL rosters. Dan LeFevour (Chicago Bears) and Antonio Brown (Pittsburgh Steelers) were selected in the NFL Draft over the weekend.

Anderson is Central Michigan's all-time leader in touchdown receptions (28) and receiving yards (3,648). He ranks second in school history with 290 career receptions. Anderson caught a pass in each of the 54 games he played during his career, setting an NCAA all-divisions record for most consecutive games with a catch. He was a two-time All-Mid-American Conference first-team selection and two-time All-MAC second-team honoree.

Gordy was a four-year starter who earned All-MAC second-team honors as a senior. He intercepted 10 passes during his career.

Zombo ranks second in school history with 25.5 career sacks. He was a two-time All-MAC first-team honoree.

The three free-agent signings bring to 10 the total number of former Chippewas currently active in the NFL.
