5 Players Signed to Future Contracts


just for those keeping score-

The New Orleans Saints have signed DE Braylon Broughton, WR Jarred Fayson, G Ryan Lee, DB Ryan Steed and WR Andy Tanner to futures contracts, New Orleans Saints Executive Vice President/General Manager Mickey Loomis announced Wednesday.

Broughton (6-6, 272): Originally signed with the Saints on April 30, 2012. He spent the 2012 season on the team’s practice squad. He was a three-year letterman, appearing in 40 games with five start at Texas Christian. He finished with 45 tackles (32 solo), 9.5 stops for a loss, three sacks, three passes defensed, two fumbles recoveries and one blocked kick.

Fayson (6-0, 213): Fayson originally entered the NFL as a rookie free agent, when he signed with the Saints on July 27, 2011. He was released by the Saints following training camp and joined the Indianapolis Colts’ practice squad on Nov. 22, 2011 where he spent the remainder of the season. He was released by the Colts on Aug. 28, 2012. He spent time on the Patriots practice squad earlier this season before rejoining the Saints practice squad on Dec. 19. He appeared in 21 games for Illinois after transferring from University of Florida and had 54 receptions for 573 yards (10.6 avg.) with two TDs.

Lee (6-3, 308): Lee entered the NFL by joining the Pittsburgh Steelers as undrafted rookie free agent when he signed with them following the draft. He was released from the Steelers practice squad on Nov. 22, 2012 and joined the Saints practice squad the following week. He appeared in 39 games during his college career at Furman, making 27 starts and logging over 1,600 plays between tackle and guard.

Steed (5-11, 185): Was signed as an undrafted free agent by the New York Jets on April 29, 2012. The Jets released Seed on August 29, 2012. He was signed to the Saints practice squad on Dec. 19, 2012. He was a three-year starter for Furman and was a three-time All Southern Conference first team selection. He hauled in four interceptions and 46 tackles during his senior year.

Tanner (6-0, 183): Spent most of the 2012 and 2011 seasons on the New Orleans practice squad. Tanner was originally signed by New Orleans as a rookie free agent in 2010 and spent the final two weeks of that campaign on the team’s practice roster. He played in 38 games at Division II Midwestern State, catching 120 passes for 1,716 yards and 20 touchdowns.

Broughton has skills to think he might bust into the regular roster. Maybe even from camp depending on the shakeout (McBride, Smith, Romeus etc)

Everyone is really high on him. He needs to do something next year to warrant his sticking around. Same for Wilson.

Maybe I missed it, but when did we re-sign him?

Is it just me or does it seem that Andy Tanner has been a preseason regular since the beginning of the Payton/Brees era?

Same here. I thought Romeus was waived before the season started.

re: 5 Players Signed to Future Contracts


My bad on Romeus. When looking on the official team site in the past few days he was down on the bottom part as IRed. For guys they Ir then injury settlement with they usually drop from the page. BUT the Saints website sucks pretty bad. Checking now there's no Romeus at all. Prolly updated when these 5 were signed. They merged all the PS and IR into the 80 player offseason roster.

How bad is the Saints website? Look HERE. They still have Billy Miller's blog from '09 on the front page. Pathetic

Dunno if any of ya ever look at other team's official websites but many are waaaay better. Check http://www.philadelphiaeagles.com/

"Good websites" and "New Orleans" are not relative for the most part period. NOLA is an old school word of mouth place. We'd be even further in the dark ages had it not been for Katrina when people realized that web applications and texting worked while everything else didn't. I was head of PR for a well established fine-dining restaurant in the FQ for years and they didn't give 2 shits about their website and did just fine.
