Lawrie signs with UFL's Sacramento Mountain Lions

Former Yale tight end Nate Lawrie was re-signed by the Sacramento Mountain Lions of the United Football League.

Lawrie was as a sixth-round pick of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the 2004 NFL draft and was the last Yale player taken in the NFL before before fullback/h-back Shane Bannon was taken in the seventh round of April's draft.

He played in 26 NFL games with stints with the Buccaneers, New Orleans Saints and Cincinnati Bengals from 2004-08.

He returns for his third season in the UFL, catching 13 passes in both the 2009 and 2010 seasons.

Lawrie will return to Connecticut when the Mountain Lions face the Hartford Colonials on Aug. 27 at Rentschler Field.
