We’ve seen a handful of places say otherwise, so we thought we’d clear one little matter up.
The New Orleans Saints have not signed quarterback Greg Paulus.
The former Duke basketball player tried out for the team over the weekend, but the Saints have confirmed to PFT that he wasn’t one of two tryout players to be offered contracts after the team’s rookie minicamp.
The confusion came over a Nola.com article. The article never says Paulus signed and is factually correct. But the caption to a photo accompanying the article says Paulus signed with the team. It doesn’t sound like there are any immediate plans to sign him.
A few websites saw the caption and passed along the incorrect information, something PFT has been accused of doing every five years or so.
So we may as well point it out when someone else screws up.
