Sicko Agrees to Terms With the Cowboys

Undrafted University of New Hampshire tight end Scott Sicko, who told NFL teams that he was going to forgo an NFL career to focus on his studies after not being drafted in the 2010 NFL Draft, has changed his mind and has agreed to terms with the Dallas Cowboys, Jason La Canfora of the NFL Network reports.

Sicko (6-4, 250) caught 52 passes for 725 yards and 9 touchdowns for the Wildcats last season, and with his size, speed, and athleticism, a handful of NFL teams had contacted him on Saturday about signing a free agent contract, including the Dallas Cowboys.

Sicko declined the contract offers, explaining that he was going to further his education, which earned the praise of Sports Illustrated's Peter King.

"It's nice, in the midst of a weekend when football seems more important than breathing to some, that we have a different kind of role model for our kids. I hope they read everything Scott Sicko just said here.", King wrote in his MMQB column on Monday.

Terms of Sicko's contract were not disclosed, but he likely fetched a signing bonus in the neighborhood of $25,000, which was the highest bonus paid out last season, and is what Penn State offensive tackle Dennis Landolt received from the New York Giants.
