SU's Amba Etta-Tawo goes undrafted in 2017 NFL Draft, signs deal with Jacksonville

Former SU receiver Amba Etta-Tawo did not hear his name called during this year's NFL Draft, but did sign a free agent deal with Jacksonville.

Former Syracuse University record-setting receiver Amba Etta-Tawo was not selected in the 2017 NFL Draft.

However, he was quick to agree to an undrafted free agent deal with the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Etta-Tawo will join forces with former Orange head coach Doug Marrone, who takes over the Jaguars head coach this season. Also, SU alum Tom Coughlin, who is the Executive Vice President of Football Operations in Jacksonville, begins his first season with the franchise.

The former Orange star broke Marvin Harrison's single-season receiving yards mark, but failed to impress NFL scouts at the Reese's Senior Bowl when dealing with a hand injury during the week's practices.

On the other hand, former Orange speedster Brisly Estime also went undrafted, but was the first to sign with an NFL team.

Estime agreed to an undrafted free agent deal with the New York Jets,
