The New Orleans Saints announced Sunday that they agreed to terms with 13 players who were not chosen in the NFL draft.
Topping the list is former Tulane quarterback Ryan Griffin, who confirmed Saturday night that he agreed to a deal with the Saints shortly after the final pick was announced.
The 6-foot-5, 206-pound Griffin started 39 games at Tulane. He completed 836 of 1,396 attempts for 9,026 yards with 79 touchdowns and 35 interceptions. He set career records for attempts, completions and completion percentage.
Also agreeing to terms were linebackers Eric Martin, Kevin Reddick, Rayford Shipman and Chase Thomas; defensive end Glenn Foster; tight ends Josh Hill and Keavon Milton; guard Tim Lelito; cornerbacks Ryan Lacy and Rod Sweeting; running back Shawne Alston; and center Elliot Mealer.
They, along with the five players the Saints selected in the draft and a select group of other free agents, will participate in the team’s rookie minicamp set for May 10-12.
