The New Orleans Saints have signed quarterback Griffin Neal, according to his college coach Terry Horan and multiple reports.

Neal, 6-4 and 220 pounds, played college football for Division III Concordia College in Moorhead, Minn.

He was not drafted in 2015 (and did not appear on the NFLPA's draft-eligible list) and spent the 2015 season in Germany playing for the Hildesheim Invaders of the semi-professional German Football League.



According to the Fargo Valley News in North Dakota, Neal drew the eyes of coaches when he attended Tulane's Pro Day at the Saints facility in March. He was offered a tryout on April 8 and signed a three-year rookie contract the same day.

Neal played four seasons for the Cobbers, completing 402-of-631 passes (63.7 percent), for 5,614 yard and 47 touchdowns, all school records. He played in 34 games and started his final 30 games. He rushed for 1,331 yards and 22 touchdowns.

Neal was named all-conference in the Minnesota Intercollegiate Athletic Conference three times.

Most likely a camp arm but the 3 year contract is surprising. I have no idea who this is.

Re: Saints Sign QB Griffin Neal

Can he also kick or punt?

Did read the 3 year deal is contingent upon him making the team...is he there to push GG? IDK to be honest

Sounds like he made an impression. Well I guess we won't be picking a QB in the draft. Not that I thought that was necessary anyway.

I'm guessing his 3-year contract in contingent on making the team?

I think some people are reading too much into this. It will probably take a couple of seasons for him to become an NFL back-up, if he ever does.
