Saints Agree to Terms with Seventh Round Draft Pick DE Greg Romeus

DE shared Big East Defensive Player of the Year honors in 2009


New Orleans Saints Executive Vice President/General Manager Mickey Loomis announced today that the club has agreed to terms with rookie defensive end Greg Romeus, the Saints' first selection in the seventh round of 2011 NFL Draft (226th overall).

The 6-5, 267-pound product of the University of Pittsburgh, was one of the Big East Conference's top defensive playmakers his sophomore and junior seasons before back and knee injuries derailed his senior campaign. He played in 40 games with 28 starts for Pittsburgh and finished with 142 tackles (77 solo), 19.5 sacks for -129 yards, 38.5 stops for losses, five forced fumbles, three fumble recoveries, one interception, 12 passes defensed and four blocked kicks.

Romeus is a native of Coral Springs, Florida, where he attended Coral Glades High School. On the prep level Romeus lettered four times in basketball before playing football as a senior at tight end and defensive end.
