The New Orleans Saints announced that they have signed sixth round draft pick offensive guard Andrew Tiller formerly of Syracuse University to a four-year deal. This leaves one last player left to bring in the fold.
Fourth round pick wide receiver Nick Toon remains the final rookie left to sign of the Saints 2012 draft class. Toon is getting good reviews from the coaching staff and is drawing comparisons to current Saints wide receiver Marques Colston.
Although Toon is a fourth round pick, he could be in a serious contention for the wide receiver spot that was vacated by Robert Meachem who left in free agency for the San Diego Chargers. Also in play is Joe Morgan, Adrian Arrington, and fellow rookie Chris Givens.
While the Saints were slow to sign their draft picks, they have picked up steam now and it’s likely that we’ll see Toon signed before the week is out. If only getting quarterback Drew Brees signed were this easy.
