MURFREESBORO, Tenn. - Four former Middle Tennessee football players signed free agent NFL contracts on Monday. Jeff Littlejohn and Keon Raymond inked with the Tennessee Titans, while Willie Hall chose the Jacksonville Jaguars and Bobby Payne went with the San Francisco 49ers. Devarick Scandrett was still negotiating at the time of this release.

It marks the largest crop of undrafted free agents for Middle Tennessee in the I-A era.

Littlejohn was the Sun Belt Conference Defensive Player of the Year in 2005 after collecting 34 tackles, 7.5 tackles for loss, and two sacks. Raymond, who enjoyed his best year as a Blue Raider last season, was third on the team with a career-best 50 tackles to go along with two interceptions and seven pass breakups.

Hall, an all-conference pick in 2005 who left school a year early, started every game at tackle for the Blue Raiders. Hall was second on the team in snaps with 748 and was second in knockdowns with a career-best 99.

Payne, who played in 10 games and did not receive a start, registered five total tackles on the season.
