After catching just 11 passes his first year with the Hilltoppers, Deane had 44 receptions for 530 yards and six touchdowns as a senior.He previously spent time with the Seattle Seahawks and the Buffalo Bills, who released Deane following minicamp.The signing is likely tied to the unavailability of tight end Seth DeValve, who entered the league-mandated concussion protocol on Wednesday. Even though he may just be a camp body Womens David Njoku Jersey , Deane’s journey to an NFL training camp is an inspirational one. His father was sentenced to prison when Deane was five, and his mother soon followed after being arrested for shoplifting - with Deane and his two brothers acting as lookouts.
