Two former Buckeyes get offers

Two former Ohio State football players have signed new free agency deals with the teams they played with.

There are Ohio State football players all over the NFL. Ohio State is an NFL factory, and that’s not going to change anytime soon. With free agency just beginning, these former Buckeyes are looking for paydays and maybe even new teams. A few Buckeyes have recently signed deals.

One of them is security Malik Hooker. Hooker signed a two-year contract with the Cowboys worth $8 million. Hooker spent last season with Dallas after spending the first four years of his career with the Colts after being drafted in the first round in 2017.

Injuries are a big reason the Colts let him go. Hooker just couldn’t stay on the field, so the Colts went in a different direction. Hooker played well enough with Dallas last year that they wanted him to stay, and hopefully he can stay injury-free.

Speaking of the Colts, this is where another former Buckeye returns. Tyquan Lewis returns to Indianapolis on a one-year, $3 million deal. Lewis was a Colts second-round pick in 2018 and has spent his entire career with them.

Lewis had the best year of his career until he blew out his knee after getting a turnover against the Titans. Injuries also plagued him. The deal gives Lewis a chance to prove he can stay on the pitch and be an impact player when he does.

More and more Buckeyes will sign free agent deals as free agency continues. I’m sure we’ll have more to say about that in the month before the draft rolls around at the end of April.
