The New Orleans Saints promoted quarterback Ryan Griffin to the active roster from the practice squad on Wednesday. Linebacker Martez Wilson was waived to make room for Griffin.

Griffin joined the team as an undrafted free agent from Tulane following the 2013 NFL Draft and spent training camp and the preseason in New Orleans. In extensive action in the preseason, Griffin completed 32-of-59 passes for 380 yards with two touchdowns and one interception and was signed to the practice squad prior to the start of the regular season.

Griffin excelled at Tulane and was a four-year letterman and starter who played in 42 games with 39 starts, completing 836-of-1396 passes (59.9 percent) for 9,026 yards, 79 touchdowns and 35 interceptions while scoring one rushing touchdown during his career. Griffin set Tulane career records in pass attempts, completions, and completion percentage while finishing second in passing yards, passing yards per game (214.9), pass attempts per game (33.2), completions per game (19.8) and 300-yard passing games (10), fourth in touchdown passes, fifth in touchdown passes per game (1.3), sixth in passing efficiency (122.4), eighth in lowest interception percentage (4.19) and 10th in yards per pass attempt (6.5).
