Announced in his post-practice media session at Tuesday's minicamp, Saints head coach Sean Payton talked about the addition of free agent quarterback Ryan Nassib.
A backup to Eli Manning, the former Giants fourth-round pick Ryan Nassib appeared in five regular season games in his career; completing 9-of-10 passes for 128 yards and a touchdown. Nassib was sidelined with an elbow injury in December of the 2016 season.
"We had a pretty strong opinion of him as a player when he was in college," said Payton. "He's a good decision maker. He's a guy that picks things pretty quickly."
Nassib joins the Saints quarterback crew of Drew Brees, Chase Daniel and Garrett Grayson.
