Kentucky wide receiver Ahmad Wagner has found an NFL home. Shortly after the conclusion of the 2020 NFL Draft, Wagner announced he is signing with the Chicago Bears as an undrafted free agent.

Wagner transferred to Kentucky after three seasons of college basketball at Iowa. In his first year at UK, Wagner did not make a catch but played in 11 games and drew three pass interference penalties, including one against the Missouri Tigers as time expried that gave UK an untimed down that they used to win the game.

In 2019, Wagner hauled in 15 passes for 254 yards and two touchdowns. The 6’7 wideout drew 11 pass interference calls. His role as a pass-catcher diminished after injuries to Terry Wilson and Sawyer Smith, but he showed off his skills as a run-blocker to help pave the way for the SEC’s top rushing attack.

Wagner will look to catch onto a Bears team that struggled throwing the Football in 2019.
