Demps rushed for 2,470 career yards and 23 touchdowns with the Florida Gators but went undrafted in April when he chose to focus on his Olympic career. He did not attend any college football all-star games or take part in any NFL draft workouts.
It was speculated Thursday that Demps might chose to sign with the New York Jets, with the possibility of reuniting with Florida teammate Tim Tebow.
Demps, along with the USA 4x100 team, won a silver medal in London.
