Camp, 24, is in his second year in the NFL out of Georgia Tech. He’s a big WR at 6-2 220. Camp is a former sixth-round pick in the 2021 Draft of the Jacksonville Jaguars. The Jaguars waived him before the start of the 2021 season, and the Texans signed him to their practice squad in September. He made his Texans debut last season in Week 16 vs. the Chargers. After being waived by the Texans on August 30 this year, he signed to the Houston practice squad the next day. He has never caught an NFL pass.
McDermott, 26, is in his fifth season. The 6-7 300-pound offensive tackle initially signed with Jacksonville as an undrafted rookie free agent in 2018 out of Miami (FL). He spent his first four years in the Jaguars organization before being waived on August 29, 2022.
He signed with the Giants on September 12 and spent eight days on the New York Giants practice squad before being released. On October 11, he signed with the Texans practice squad.
