The Philadelphia Eagles have signed wide receiver Keevan Lucas to a three-year deal and have waived linebacker Steven Daniels, according to Zach Berman of The Philadelphia Inquirer.

Lucas, who played his college football at the University of Tulsa, went undrafted and has had a strange several months.

He expected to hear his name called during the NFL Draft back in April and even held a party with around 300 people waiting for the announcement. Unfortunately, it never came.

Then, the Buffalo Bills called Lucas and said they wanted to sign him, which Lucas announced in front of family and friends. However, the excitement was short-lived, as the Bills then called back and withdrew their offer due to medical concerns.

Now, Lucas is getting a shot with the Eagles.

The 22-year-old played all four of his collegiate seasons at Tulsa and had monster years during his sophomore and senior campaigns.

In his sophomore year, Lucas caught 101 passes for 1,219 yards and 11 touchdowns.

Two seasons later, the 5-foot-10, 195-pounder registered 81 receptions for 1,180 yards and 15 scores.

He snared 32 balls for 442 yards while reaching the end zone once during his freshman year.

Lucas missed all but four games of his junior campaign due to a knee injury.

Daniels, who played his college football at Boston College, was originally selected by the Washington Redskins in the seventh round (232nd pick overall) of the 2016 NFL Draft.

He tore his labrum during Redskins training camp last summer and missed his entire rookie season, leading to him being waived by the team back in May.

The Eagles picked Daniels up and then signed him to a three-year contract on July 26 before waiving him again.
