Former Florida Gators star Cornelius Ingram signs $1.9 million contract

GAINESVILLE -- Congratulations are in order to Cornelius Ingram. The Gators' former tight end signed a four-year, $1.9 million deal on Wednesday with the Philadelphia Eagles.

A fifth-round pick in the 2009 NFL Draft, Ingram has performed well during the Eagles' offseason training camps. With his contract in order, Ingram can now focus on earning playing time with his new team. He is expected to compete for the Eagles' back-up tight end job this offseason.

Ingram's signing bonus: $183, 000. Way to go, C.I.!

It wasn't that long ago that I was writing on an e-get well card for C.I. right here on Gator Clause.

Awesome news. We'll be hearing his name plenty.

NFL rosters will be filling up with former Gators. It's already started.

Congrats CI !!

This kid might be the solution to our basketball back court problems or at least help. He might be interested in the Gator after being released from USC's letter of intend.

What do you think Joe? Might we get this kid and can he be a solution or not?

Good for CI

I love all of our '09 draftees, but CI is DEFINITELY the one I'd like to see succeed the most. Remember him vividly beating us in the playoffs (basketball) his senior year. One heck of an athlete and kid.
