Kaleb Eulls had never played on the offensive line. Not in youth ball, high school or college.

So when New Orleans Saints coaches approached him about switching from defensive tackle to offensive guard after his rookie NFL season, he wasn't sure what to think.



"It was just a shocking reaction," he said. "But I had a little time to just think about what I wanted to do and I feel like I'm the right person to fit that position for what they wanted to do. I feel like it was a great choice."

Eulls, who signed with the Saints last summer as an undrafted rookie from Mississippi State, spent the entire season on the team's roster but played in only four games.

The battle for a roster spot on the interior defensive line got more crowded after the Saints signed Nick Fairley and drafted Sheldon Rankins and David Onyemata.

A lot of players willing to switch positions. I like it a lot!

He can still make the practice squad hopefully while he develops the offensive trench skills. I'm happy that the coaches want him on the team.

Practice squad pay is better than no pay.
