London Olympics silver medalist Jeff Demps is expected to sign a contract Friday afternoon with the New England Patriots, according to multiple sources.
Demps is flying to Orlando, Fla., Friday to meet with his representatives and go over the details of the agreement. He is expected to make an announcement at 5 p.m. ET; multiple sources say the Patriots are the team he is willing to play for.
His agent, Daniel Rose, wouldn’t confirm the agreement, only to say Demps should make an announcement later Friday.
Several NFL teams, including the New York Jets, were interested in Demps, who was a running back at Florida. He was not drafted in April while he was preparing for the Olympics. He was part of the 4×100-meter relay team that finished second to Jamaica.
