Saints Sign Rookie Jimmy Graham, Veteran QB Patrick Ramsey.


The Saints front office has just announced it has reached terms with two players, rookie draft choice Jimmy Graham and veteran quarterback Patrick Ramsey.

Graham, the Saints third round selection, was signed to a four year deal and is among the last of the Saints draft class to agree to terms.

First round pick corner Patrick Robinson is the lone rookie left un-signed and is not likely to be under contract by the start of training camp.

Graham, a former basketball star at the University of Miami, transferred to football  his senior season for the Hurricanes and posted 17 catches for 213 yards and five touchdowns.

Considered a raw talent by scouts Graham so far has proven to be a commodity for the Saints standing out in team practices and activities with superb route running and catching ability.

If he continues to perform the way he has throughout the off-season then he will see the field a considerable amount in his rookie year with the Saints.

Ramsey agreed to a one year contract and will compete against the Saints seventh round pick Sean Canfield and second year pro Chase Daniel for the top backup spot behind Drew Brees.

The Saints opted to not bring back Mark Brunell after the aging quarterback played terribly at the end of last season in place of Brees. Some would argue that Ramsey is no better than Brunell making his signing seem like an unneccessary one.

Ramsey originally entered the league as a first round draft pick of the Washington Redskins in 2002 but was met with little success at the pro level.

Before being drafted Ramsey was a stand out quarterback for Tulane and is native to Louisiana hailing from Ruston.
