Shepherd QB Product Tyson Bagent Signs with Chicago Bears



Tyson Bagent

He wasn’t drafted, but Tyson Bagent will get his chance to represent the state of West Virginia in the NFL after all.

The quarterback product out of Shepherd University in Shepherd, West Virginia signed with the Chicago Bears as a free agent.

Even though the Martinsburg, West Virginia native did not garner attention like other quarterbacks from Division I schools, his college statistics were too much to ignore for an NFL to not give him a chance. In Division II, he threw for 4,580 yards in 2022 and exactly 5,000 yards passing in 2021. Bagent also completed 70% of his passes and tossed 41 touchdowns this past season, totaling 91 the last two years combined.

Tyson in the NFL also no doubt means hearing more from his dad, Travis. Mr. Bagent actually spoke for his son at the NFL Combine in Indianapolis and entertained the media members, including WVSN’s Mike Asti, in attendance.
