Former LSU Star Athlete Cyril Grayson Signs With Buccaneers
Cyril Grayson, a former 4-time NCAA Champion at LSU, is joining an NFC South team, a division rival of the New Orleans Saints.
Grayson, who spent the preseason with the Saints prior to being released, was signed by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Monday.
For Grayson, who was on the practice squad of the Dallas Cowboys, this will be Grayson's first stint on an active NFL roster.
While he did attend LSU, Grayson didn't play football.
A native of Kenner, Louisiana, and a prep graduate of Rummel High School, Grayson participated in track at LSU, where he excelled doing sprints and relays, becoming a four-time NCAA Champion, a seven-time All-American, and a five-time All-SEC honoree.
After running a 4.33 40 at LSU's Pro Day in 2017, Grayson signed with the Seattle Seahawks, before spending the 2018 preseason with the Chicago Bears.
Grayson spent most of the 2018 season on the practice squad of the Houston Texans.
Grayson caught 8 passes for 147 yards for the Saints in four preseason games this year.
