JoJo Kemp signs with an NFL team




Running back JoJo Kemp just became the latest Kentucky Wildcat to sign a free agent deal with an NFL team following this weekend’s draft. According to UK, Kemp has signed with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Meanwhile, defensive back Blake McClain tweeted that he’s got minicamp try outs with the Cincinnati Bengals and Washington Redskins:

Here’s a running tab of which NFL Cats went were in the last few days:

  • Boom Williams: Signed with Cincinnati Bengals
  • JD Harmon: Signed with Cleveland Browns
  • Ryan Timmons: Signed with Chicago Bears
  • JoJo Kemp: Signed with Tampa Bay Buccaneers
  • Blake McClain: Mini-camp try outs with Cincinnati Bengals and Washington Redskins

Meanwhile, still no news on Kentucky’s top draft prospect, Jon Toth. Toth was considered the fourth best center in the draft by ESPN’s Todd McShay, but, mysteriously, went undrafted. There were rumors he was going to sign with the San Francisco 49ers, but those have since been shot down after rumblings of a potential injury. Hmm.

Stay tuned for more on Toth. In the meantime, congrats to JoJo, Blake, and all the other former Cats who have a chance at making a roster.

    Hoping for the best for Toth. Still a headscratcher where teams will draft/sign injured players or even risk fan ire by drafting/signing players with checkered histories but not sign one of the best OL players in the country who doesn’t have a history of injuries.

    As for the rest of them, can’t be anything but happy for all they did the past few years for building up this program. Especially, those who were highly regarded coming out of high school to be sold on nothing but a vision. Still not done building, but they went through a lot to help us get to where we are.
