UW free agent update — Aiyewa to Tampa Bay

Former UW linebacker Victor Aiyewa has agreed to a deal with Tampa Bay as an undrafted free agent, becoming the sixth former Husky to latch on with a team since the lockout ended earlier this week.

That number doesn’t include two UW players who were taken in the draft last April — QB Jake Locker (Tennessee) and LB Mason Foster (Tampa Bay). Obviously, Aiyewa and Foster will now each be trying to make the roster of the Bucs, who open training camp on Friday.

Aiyewa led the Pac-10 in tackles for a loss last season with 22.5 and was fourth on the Huskies in tackles with 83.

Others who have signed are:
— receiver D’Andre Goodwin (Denver);
— fullback Austin Sylvester (Denver);
— offensive lineman Cody Habben (San Diego);
— safety Nate Williams (Baltimore);
— and fullback Dorson Boyce (Seattle).

Locker has yet to sign a contract, but this story speculates on what he might get.
