One of the first to sign was tight end Noah Togiai, as he joined Medford's Dante Olson as one of the Philadelphia Eagles UFA signings. At Oregon State, Togiai caught over 100 passes for more than 1,000 yards becoming only the sixth Beaver tight end to collect 1,000 receiving yards.

The second signing was former Beaver running back Artavis Pierce, who signed on with the Chicago Bears. While at Oregon State, Pierce rushed his way into the leaderboards, reaching 10th all-time on the rushing yards charts (2,127 yards) and tied for first in yards per carry (5.8 yards).

The final UFA signing, as of the posting of this article, was offensive lineman Clay Cordasco. The big man is headed to Cincinnati to join Joe Burrow and the Bengals.
