Randolph to Chiefs, Burnett to Vikings



Linebacker Stephen Nicholas, drafted in the fourth round by the Atlanta Falcons, was USF's first draft pick in three years, but he wasn't the only Bulls player matched with an NFL team on Sunday.

Two Bulls seniors from Tampa who were passed over in the draft said they agreed to free-agent deals Sunday, with former Durant star Ean Randolph signing with the Kansas City Chiefs and former Jefferson safety Jeremy Burnett signing with the Minnesota Vikings.

"I talked to a couple of teams, but Kansas City was the best fit for me," said Randolph, a receiver who hopes to make the team as a return specialist.

Also, former Hillsborough and USF safety J.R. Reed, cut by Atlanta last week, has a workout Thursday with the New York Giants, his agent, Jonathan Kline, said.
