N-Score: 180Riding a long time rep as a good QB and a good guy. Brees will always be remembered as the one who led post-Katrina New Orleans to its first Super Bowl title.
Per Dave Cariello:
There hasn’t been any official confirmation of the signing yet by the Saints or by any local media outlet. He is not listed on the roster at the Saints official website. The announcement could be pending Maltos securing a proper work visa in the United States.
Maltos is the former placekicker and punter for the Autonomous University of Nuevo León, He will get a chance to compete with both Garrett Hartley and Thomas Morstead for a roster spot but I’m sure he’s being brought in more for his placekicking.

Been asked a lot about the #Saints signing K Jose Carlos Maltos. He's only been invited to rookie camp for a tryout. Not under contract.
