Per the Saints website: The New Orleans Saints sign 10 to practice squad. The players signed were WR Brandon Coleman, ILB Todd Davis, CB Terrence Frederick, TE Nic Jacobs, WR Seantavius Jones, G Antoine McClain, T Tavon Rooks, NT Lawrence Virgil, CB Trevin Wade and S Pierre Warren.
Most players are familiar to Saints fans except for Antoine McClain. The Saints site has the following information on him:
“McClain, 6-5, 336, was originally signed as a free agent by the Baltimore Ravens out of Clemson following the 2012 NFL Draft. Despite not playing in a regular season game, he was on the Oakland Raiders active roster for the first six weeks of the 2013 regular season, before being acquired on waivers by Buffalo, where he was a backup lineman for the team’s last 11 contests.”
I believe the Who Dat Nation will be happy with the addition of each of these players but most notably the signing of Nic Jacobs and Pierre Warren who were not mentioned in the press yesterday. Both are very good players, and we have to be excited to have them in the building.
