Three Irish players sign as free agents

Notre Dame had four players selected in the NFL draft over the weekend, and three more Irish players have inked free-agent deals.

Offensive tackle Paul Duncan and safety Kyle McCarthy both signed with Denver, where they will join center Eric Olsen, whom the Broncos drafted in the sixth round. Safety Sergio Brown signed with New England, where he'll be reunited with former Notre Dame defensive backs coach Corwin Brown.

Running back James Aldridge has been invited to the Miami Dolphins rookie minicamp, while wide receiver Robby Parris will attend rookie minicamp with the Cleveland Browns. David Grimes has been invited to try out with Kansas City, where former Notre Dame head coach Charlie Weis now serves as offensive coordinator.
