Cam Serigne has never lived in New Orleans, but he still considers the city his home.

At New Orleans Saints rookie minicamp this weekend, Serigne will try to make New Orleans a permanent home.

An undrafted rookie tight end from Wake Forest, Serigne will be among the players trying out for the Saints during the three-day rookie camp, which runs Friday (May 11) through Sunday (May 13).

But, one unique aspect of Serigne's upcoming experience is that he booked a one-way ticket because he's planning on visiting relatives after the three days of practice.



"My roots are there," he said. "For me, this really feels like I have a chance to come home, and it's just neat for me."

Serigne moved around a lot growing up because of his father's job with Mobil. He had multiple stops in Virginia and Texas as well as a two-year stop in London, but because of his family's roots in St. Bernard Parish, his immediate family frequently visited New Orleans no matter where the group lived at the time.


"When people would ask me where I'm from growing up, I'd always tell them New Orleans, because that's the only place that really felt like home to me because I was always moving around," Serigne said.

Serigne's father, David, is from Toca, and his mother, Michelle, is from Violet. He hasn't lived in New Orleans, but he's extremely familiar with the city. He's had po-boys and sno-balls, attended crawfish boils and hung out in the French Quarter. He said his mom makes great gumbo, too.

I figured he was just a poor college grad who didn't have the fare for a return ticket.

He will make this team. So many good prospects. Peyton is going to have to double down on new blood and get off the body of work stat sheet. We need those kinda guys but we may let some good ones go for no good reason.
