Former MSU standout Dillon Day receives highest UDFA bonus from Denver
It can't be easy hearing 256 players being drafted and not have your name be among them. One thing that surely eases the pain? Two words: signing bonus.
After not being selected in the draft, former Mississippi State center Dillon Day will get his initial chance at a NFL career with the Denver Broncos. According to 9 News of Denver, Day received the largest signing bonus handed out by the Broncos following the draft.
"I'm going to give it my best shot," Day said. "I thought I was going to get drafted but once it didn't happen I knew I had to take the next forward and sign with a team and my agent thought this would be the best fit."
The interior offensive lineman was offered $8,000 to sign with the Broncos, which was the most of the eight undrafted players signed by the team.
