The undrafted Washington State defensive lineman is still making big plays

Mike DiNovo-USA TODAY Sports

Undrafted Washington State Cougar, Destiny Vaeao made his presence felt last night on Monday Night Football for the Philadelphia Eagles. In the third quarter against the Chicago Bears with the Eagles leading 9-7, Vaeao strip-sacked  Bears quarterback Jay Cutler in a very crucial moment in the game.

The fumble was recovered by Jordan Hicks and the Eagles went on to score 21 straight points and secure their second win of the young season. After the play, Jay Cutler left the field with an apparent  right hand injury and did not return.

Vaeao went undrafted in April and signed a UDFA contract shortly after the draft. During the preseason he racked up 5 tackles and also managed to record a half of a sack. The coaches liked what they saw in Vaeao and are now getting rewarded and get to watch what we as Cougar fans saw from the 4-year starter.
