Owls boast largest NFL class in school history

Time will tell if the former Temple players will remain on NFL rosters. But for now, they get the satisfaction of making history.

Seven rookie free agents and two draft picks -- Muhammad Wilkerson and Jaiquawn Jarrett -- make up the largest class to sign with the NFL in school history.

The free agents are wideout Michael Campbell (New York Jets), tight end Vaughn Charlton (Pittsburgh Steelers), linebacker Peanut Joseph (Green Bay Packers), defensive tackle Eli Joseph (Green Bay Packers), linebacker Amara Kamara (Kansas City Chiefs) and offensive linemen Colin Madison (Baltimore Ravens) and Darius Morris (Houston Texans).

Wilkerson, a defensive tackle, was selected by the Jets in the first round of April’s draft. Jarrett, a safety, was drafted by the Eagles in the second round.
