Former Florida football players were part of moves made by NFL teams over the past several days.

On Monday, the New Orleans Saints cut wide receiver Ahmad Fulwood, who was signed to an undrafted free agent contract after the NFL draft last month.

Also Monday, the Buffalo Bills signed linebacker Anthony Harrell after he competed in rookie minicamp on a tryout basis.

Harrell, 6-foot-2 and 237 pounds, played three seasons at Georgia Tech before transferring to Florida for his final year of college eligibility. His father, James, played in the NFL for Detroit and Kansas City after also playing for Florida in college.

The Dallas Cowboys made it official last Friday when they announced the signing of undrafted free agent quarterback Austin Appleby, who made it public hours after the NFL draft in April.

Also last week, the Indianapolis Colts signed cornerback Quincy Wilson. Terms of the deal was not immediately available but players selected after the first round typically sign four-year deals.

Wilson was a second-round pick. The former Florida player is expected to immediately fight for a starting job.

The Houston Texans announced the signing of cornerback Marcus Roberson. He signed with the St. Louis Rams as an undrafted free agent after the 2014 NFL draft. He was with the Buffalo Bills last year and the team cut him last week.

Houston also announced today the signing of undrafted free agent wide receiver Chris Thompson, a Gainesville High School product.
