Go Vandals.com- Tight end Justin Podrabsky, offensive lineman Jesse Davis and defensive tackle Quayshawne Buckley signed free agent deals Saturday - and Davis and Podrabsky are going to teams with former Vandals on staff.
Podrabsky is headed to Dallas for a tryout with the Cowboys and Davis is off to Seattle to take a shot at the Seahawks roster. Podrabsky goes to a team where former Vandal quarterback Scott Linehan, also the father of current Vandal Matt Linehan and future Vandal Mike Linehan, coaches, while Tom Cable, who played and coached at Idaho and is the father of defensive end Zach Cable, is with the Seahawks. Buckley is headed to Tampa Bay.
Podrabsky, from Lewiston, Idaho, and Davis, from nearby Asotin, Wash., both went through position chances at Idaho before securing starting positions. Podrabsky came in as a quarterback, while Davis began his career as a defensive tackle before switching to the offensive side of the ball.
Davis started as a sophomore on the defensive line before making the move. He started the first five games of his junior season before being sidelined with an injury. He was a mainstay on the offensive front as a senior.
Podrabsky was Idaho's third leading receiver as a senior with 37 catches for 380 yards and one touchdown. He finished his career with 44 receptions for 484 yards.
Buckley, from Ontario, Calif., developed into a force on the defensive front and was highly praised for his agility and speed. He finished his Idaho career with 181 total tackles of which 43 were tackles for loss and 16 were sacks. He was the Vandals' third leading tackler during his senior season.
