List Of Saints Undrafted Rookie Free Agent Signings
The New Orleans Saints picked up five players in the NFL Draft, and they added a lot more talent with their undrafted rookie free agent signings.
Whenever the 7th Round ends, the action begins for the guys who didn't hear their names called. The Saints were on the phone with a lot of different players and agents, trying to fill their final needs after the conclusion of the draft.
The Saints needed a guard, and they signed a projected 4th Rounder in Landon Turner. They also took a couple fliers on linebackers, linemen, defensive backs and receivers. They even signed a fullback.
NOLA.com's Kat Terrell kept a running list of all the Saints' activity after the conclusion of the NFL Draft, so if you want to see exactly when New Orleans made the call, she has you covered. It is noteworthy though that the Saints only have room for 17 undrafted rookie free agents, and this list names 19 players. We won't know the official list until the Saints confirm all the names.
That being said, you can still get the low-down on all the possible new additions. Below is a list of all the unofficial undrafted rookie free agent signees, complete with links to their draft profiles. Go nuts, Saints fans.
