Neither team has confirmed the free-agent signings, but several reports over the weekend have indicated that Kentucky favorites Micah Johnson and Dicky Lyons have signed free-agent deals with respective NFL teams.

Johnson's Facebook account hints that he will sign with the New York Giants after rookie minicamp this weekend. Should Johnson sign, he would be the only tryout player to make the Giants' roster, according to Jenny Vrentas with The Star-Ledger.

Lyons' agent with XAM Sports tweeted this weekend that Lyons, a former UK wide receiver, has inked with the Broncos, joining former teammates Wesley Woodyard and Braxton Kelley in Denver.

Neither deal has been confirmed on the teams' respective websites.

Johnson totaled 250 tackles during his four-year stop at UK, including 19.5 tackles for loss. Lyons led UK in receptions and receiving yards his senior season despite suffering a season-ending knee injury midway through the year.
