A day after going undrafted and unsigned as rookie free agents, three former Notre Dame football players have earned tryout invitations for a chance to make an NFL roster.

Former ND running back Cam McDaniel’s opportunity will come with the Dallas Cowboys. Linebacker Kendall Moore will try out with the Tennessee Titans, and former ND and Miami (Ohio) QB Andrew Hendrix will get an audition from the Cincinnati Bengals.

Tight end Ben Koyack was the lone ND player selected in the 2015 NFL Draft, which concluded Saturday. He was a seventh-round selection of the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Undrafted Irish players DaVaris Daniels (Minnesota), kicker Kyle Brindza (Detroit) and cornerback Cody Riggs (Tennessee) all signed contracts Saturday night as priority rookie free agents.​
