Chip Kelly is a New Hampshire grad and he coached there as well. He’s now offering a shot to a couple of players from his alma mater. A pair of UNH players will tryout for the Eagles in the upcoming mini-camp.
Dontra Peters played CB for UNH as a Senior, after spending his first 3 years on offense. He has good size at 6-0, 201. Peters had 4 INTs this year and has plenty of KOR experience.
ILB Matt Evans (6-0, 227) was a tackling machine for UNH. He finished his career with 460 tackles. Evans won the Buck Buchanan Award in 2011 as the nation’s top I-AA defensive player. He had 3 INTs, 3 FFs, 92 solo tackles, and 7.5 TFLs. He also ran 2 of the INTs back for TDs.
The players do not count against the 90-man roster limit. Both are major longshots.
