Cerge-Henderson took part in a local pro day with the Buccaneers during the pre-draft season in mid-April, and also one with the Falcons and did well at both, he said.
“I was just banking on at least one of them giving me an invite earlier, but better later than never,” he said.
Brad Stewart, a three-year starting wide receiver at Georgia Tech, is a former Benedictine Cadet. He was the AJC's Class AA offensive player of the year in 2014, when Benedictine won its first state championship.
Stewart started 42 games in his career, including the final 40 in a row. He caught a career-high 15 passes for 268 yards and three touchdowns as a senior. He proved himself as a sure-handed target, a willing blocker in the run game and a dependable punt returner.
The 49ers rookie mini-camp is this coming weekend while the Buccaneers’ is the following weekend. Both Cerge-Henderson and Stewart will graduate this weekend, as well.
As tryout players, both will try to earn undrafted free-agent contracts during the mini-camps.
Defensive end Anree Saint-Amour has an undrafted free-agent deal with the Minnesota Vikings, quarterback TaQuon Marshall has a rookie mini-camp invitation with the Baltimore Ravens (as a wide receiver) and defensive lineman Desmond Branch has an invitation to the Falcons’ rookie mini-camp.
