Patrick Ramsey To Sign With The Saints Before Training Camp.
The Saints seem intent on adding a veteran presence to compete for the backup quarterback spot now that Brunell has been sent packing.
Don’t feel bad for Brunell though as all indications point to him backing up Mark Sanchez with the Jets next season.
Rumor has it free agent quarterback Patrick Ramsey has agreed to join the Saints sometime before training camp even though officially a contract has not been put in place.
Ramsey, a former first round draft pick of the Redskins, has played with several teams besides Washington including the New York Jets, Denver Broncos, Tennessee Titans and Detroit Lions.
He had his best statistical season with the Redskins in 2003 when he started 11 games recording 2,166 yards passing, 14 touchdowns and 9 interceptions with a passer rating of 75.8.
If he does join the Saints he will enter training camp as the fourth quarterback on the roster behind pro bowler Drew Brees, second year backup Chase Daniel and seventh round pick Sean Canfield.
That’s not including former Syracuse quarterback Greg Paulus who tried out at rookie camp and again during the most recent mini-camp. Payton has said that Paulus is “on the bubble” so the chance exists he could be in the mix as well.
Currently Chase Daniel is the front runner for the top backup spot and is listed as the second quarterback on the depth chart and seems primed to hold onto that title heading into the regular season.
