Several Former Pokes Sign Free Agent Contracts Following the 2020 NFL Draft

A.J. Green headed to Cleveland, other former Cowboys make deals.



For the first time in 12 years an Oklahoma State Cowboy was not selected in the NFL Draft. While that’s not a stat you normally want celebrated, there were several former Pokes that landed with NFL teams with an opportunity to earn a roster spot.

Here’s a running list of former Cowboys that signed free agent deals after things wrapped up Saturday afternoon.

A.J. Green Signs with Cleveland Browns

Green did not earn the distinction of being the first OSU cornerback drafted since Justin Gilbert went No. 8 overall in 2014, but he’ll have at least a shot at proving he can stick with the same team.

After inciting that apparent bidding war between NFL suitors, the sought-after DB came to a deal with the Browns.

Kemah Siverand Signs with Seattle Seahawks

The former Aggie corner spent the last two years in Stillwater serving a rotational role in the Cowboys secondary. He’ll compete for a spot behind former Cowboy safety Tre Flowers at CB in Seattle.

Jalen McCleskey Signs with Atlanta Falcons

After the undersized, but speedy, wideout was OSU’s Nos. 2 and 3 receiver his sophomore and junior seasons, respectively, he took his talents to Tulane where his father, former NFL defensive back J.J. McCleskey was on staff.

McCleskey amassed 37 catches for 581 yards and four touchdowns for the Green Wave in 2019. He will get a chance to earn a spot in Atlanta come rookie minicamp.

Arlington Hambright Signs with Chicago Bears

Former OSU lineman Arlington Hambright will get a shot with the Chicago Bears. He’s the one former Cowboy to get drafted, though he will be on the books for Colorado where he spent his final year.

Following his stint at Garden City Community College, Hambright redshirted in 2017 and then started the first five games of the season for the Cowboys in 2018. Unfortunately injury derailed his year and Hambright transferred to Colorado where he played out his final year of eligibility. The Bears did not select an offensive lineman in this year’s draft.

Madre Harper Signs with Las Vegas Raiders

Harper signed with Oklahoma State as a three-star recruit with promise in the 2016 cycle but was dismissed from the program midway through the 2017 season. He played in seven games and recorded 10 tackles at OSU before finding a landing spot at Southern Illinois where he spent two seasons. Now he’s headed to the Raiders.
