Russell, Eubanks sign with pro teams
Three of Georgia Southern's 11 defensive starters from 2012 are heading for the NFL. The day after safety J.J. Wilcox was selected in the third round of the NFL Draft, safety Darius Eubanks and defensive tackle Brent Russell were offered free-agent contracts. Eubanks inked with the Minnesota Vikings, and Russell signed with the Chicago Bears Saturday after the draft. Though Eubanks and his family were disappointed his name wasn't called during the draft, there was a silver lining.
