Former Duke basketball player and one-year Syracuse football player Greg Paulus wasn’t drafted, and he’s yet to be signed as a free agent.
But he’s still got a chance to stick.
The Saints brought him to a rookie minicamp last month on a tryout (tree-out) basis. And he’s back again for a full-squad minicamp. But he’s not yet under contract.
“We wanted to look at him,” Payton said Saturday, per the Associated Press. “He was here for the rookie camp
and did a good job. He’s a pretty good decision maker.”
The Saints currently have Chase Daniel and rookie seventh-rounder Sean Canfield backing up Super Bowl XLIV MVP Drew Brees.
It’s more likely that the Saints would sign a veteran backup instead of Paulus, especially with Canfield on the roster.
