Saints sign QB Ryan Griffin to practice squad

Like many teams that only kept two quarterbacks on the 53-man roster, the Saints have added a quarterback to the practice squad.

New Orleans, which went with only Luke McCown behind Drew Brees on the regular-season depth chart, announced that Ryan Griffin, a rookie quarterback from Tulane, has made the practice squad.

Griffin signed with the Saints this year as an undrafted free agent after a college career in which he started 39 games and threw for 9,026 yards and 79 touchdowns. In the preseason Griffin completed 32 of 59 passes for 380 yards, with two touchdowns and one interception.

Also on the Saints’ practice squad are receiver Saalim Hakim, tight end Michael Higgins, fullback Austin Johnson, offensive tackle Marcel Jones and defensive back Jumal Rolle. All six were cut by the Saints on Saturday.

    My two favorite rookie qbs in preseason were Ryan Griffin and Brad Sorensen, those two showed a lot of potential.

    It helps he ran basically the same system the saints run in college. The Sean Payton coaching tree is starting to grow some branches.

    allday69……..when was the last time your team won a championship? Maybe if your team was more tough and less whine they might win something. By the way, you call trying to knock somebody’s block off in football cheating? You probably were on the dance squad!
