Saints Announce UDFA Signings

The Saints have announced their list of undrafted free agents. The list includes an LSU Tiger, Mel Kiper's favorite long snapper and a guy who painted his face for games and went by the nickname "ManKind." The 14 players will participate in rookie mini camp May 7-9. Most of these players' best shot will be making the practice squad, but the Saints have not hesitated to keep UDFAs on the active roster and give them playing time. Just look at Pierre Thomas, Jonathan Casillas or Jo-Lonn Dunbar among the examples.

  • Jason Beauchamp – Linebacker, UNLV
  • Chris Bell – Wide Receiver, Norfolk State
  • Carlos Brown – Running Back, Michigan
  • Brandon Carter – Guard, Texas Tech
  • Harry Coleman – Linebacker, LSU
  • Christian Ducré – Running Back, Mississippi State
  • Junior Galette – Defensive End, Stillman
  • Clint Gresham – Long Snapper, TCU
  • Ryan Hamilton – Safety, Vanderbilt
  • Chris Ivory – Running Back, Tiffin
