Several Florida Gators get NFL opportunity with free agency

In the madness that is the NFL free agency market right now, several former Florida Gators are getting their shots with NFL teams.

DL Terron Sanders has signed with the Baltimore Ravens, where former UF defensive coordinator Teryl Austin is now an assistant. Sanders' Twitter account has been active the past two days detailing his travel to Baltimore, and his struggles to get through his medical examinations. He is expected to go through his first conditioning drills today.

Kicker Chas Henry is with the Philadelphia Eagles, joining former teammate Riley Cooper. DE Justin Trattou, a New Jersey native, has signed with the New York Giants. And former RB Emmanuel Moody will join the Buffalo Bills.

Veteran receiver and former Gator Jabar Gaffney was acquired from Denver by the Washington Redskins. Gaffney, 30, has 375 receptions over nine NFL seasons with Houston, New England and Denver. He is coming off the consecutive seasons of his career: 54 catches for 732 yards in 2009 and 65 catches for 875 yards last year.
