Wide receiver Mark Chapman, who was taken with the first overall pick in the 2018 CFL Draft by the Hamilton Tiger-Cats, has agreed to a deal with the NFL's Denver Broncos, according to TSN Football Insider Dave Naylor.
Ahead of signing with the Broncos, Naylor reported that Chapman recently indicated to the Tiger-Cats that he wanted to play in the CFL. The two parties had been unable to reach an agreement following May's draft. In hopes of aiding the negotiation process, Chapman travelled to Hamilton in June to watch the Tiger-Cats play in person.
The Broncos will be the second NFL team that Chapman has spent time with. He attended rookie mini-camp with the New York Giants in May.
During his collegiate career with Central Michigan, Chapman recorded 2040 yards and 10 touchdowns on 147 career receptions.
