Texas RB Selvin Young will join fellow Longhorns D.D. Lewis and Tim Crowder, who was taken in the second round of this year's draft, on the Broncos' roster, while C Lyle Sendlein signed a free-agent contract with the Arizona Cardinals.

Former Texas running back Selvin Young is headed to the Denver Broncos, a team famous in the NFL for producing great running backs, and Lyle Sendlein is headed home. The Longhorn center starred for the Scottsdales Chaparrals in high school and will be joining the Arizona Cardinals.

It was officially announced that Young and Sendlein have signed free agent deals with their respective NFL clubs after they were not selected in the 2007 NFL Draft.

In a release from Texas, Young said:

"I've had conversations with the Broncos running backs coach (Bobby Turner) since the Pro Day at Texas. I had a few other teams interested, but I was really comfortable with Denver and I think I have a good chance of making the team."

Sendlein wass quoted as saying:

"I had about 20 to 25 teams call to check on my status, but my agent and I felt like Arizona would be a good fit," "It is a new coaching staff so everyone is starting fresh. I got a chance to speak with the staff and really liked what they had to say. I'm going to do everything I can from this point forward to earn a roster spot."

Former Longhorns Tully Janszen and Greg Johnson, among others, remain unsigned.

Ramonce Taylor, who transferred to Texas College after being dismissed from the team, also remains unsigned.
