Former Central Washington University safety Deionte Gordon will participate in a full-pad tryout with the San Jose SaberCats of the Arena Football League next Monday.
Gordon, who graduated from Central with a degree in social science last fall, learned about the tryout on Monday. He said the team told him they will sign him if he fits in with their scheme.
Gordon, along with offensive linemen Mike Nelson, Brooks Abel and Michael Dobbins, and defensive lineman Austin Schnizler, participated in Central's pro day four months ago.
Gordon transferred to Central in 2011 after playing for California State University, Sacramento.
