RYAN GRIFFIN RUMORS & GOSSIP

Saints Sign QB Ryan Griffin To Their Practice Squad

  Mike Triplett reports that the Saints are signing QB Ryan Griffin to their practice squad now that he passed through waivers unclaimed. There was talk that Griffin could end up beating out veteran Luke McCown for the Saints’ backup job behind Drew Brees, but New Orleans elected to go with the guy who has more experience. I’m sure the Saints are happy to keep Griffin...

Steelers Should Steal QB Ryan Griffin Away From Gambling Saints

By my count, the Pittsburgh Steelers were one of 18 teams that decided to keep three quarterbacks on their initial 53 man roster following the Saturday cuts. While the team certainly didn’t feel the need to waive third-string quarterback Landry Jones and risk losing him, the New Orleans Saints seemed to be following the same […] Steelers Should Steal QB Ryan Griffin Away From...

New Orleans Saints decide to roster a kicker, cut promising young QB

The Ryan Griffin era is over in New Orleans. Unfortunately a good preseason and fantastic camp weren’t enough to make the team, as the Saints waived Griffin on Tuesday to make room for kicker Shayne Graham. You’ll remember that the Saints cut Graham (along with kicker Derek Dimke) on Saturday. It’s unclear the reasoning behind the order in which the Saints executed these moves...

Understanding the Saints’ kicker maneuver

By now we know that Shayne Graham will be the Saints’ 2014 kicker, at least for now, as he’s been re-signed at the expense of quarterback Ryan Griffin. So why did the Saints cut Graham, along with Derek Dimke, temporarily leaving the roster kickerless? And why did they keep Griffin on their initial 53 man roster, only to waive him now? There’s a lot of factors at play, and...

Saints cut QB Griffin to sign kicker Shayne Graham

Today the New Orleans Saints waived QB Ryan Griffin, the former Tulane Green Wave starting quarterback. Griffin was beaten out by Luke McCown to back up Drew Brees. The Saints will try to slip Griffin through the waiver wire, but might nit be succesful. In a corresponding move the team signed kicker Shayne Graham. The post Saints cut QB Griffin to sign kicker Shayne Graham appeared...

Saints Waive QB Ryan Griffin

  The New Orleans Saints have placed QB Ryan Griffin on waivers Tuesday, according to Field Yates of ESPN. This gives them the roster spot they needed to sign veteran K Shayne Graham. There was talk that Griffin could end up beating out veteran Luke McCown for the Saints’ backup job behind Drew Brees, so we’ll have to see if a quarterback-needy team decides to sign him...

Ryan Griffin looks like New Orleans Saints' quarterback of the future

The thought of playing a game without Drew Brees is enough to make most New Orleans Saints fans spontaneously combust. Over the years, more than a few rosary beads have worn thin in prayer for the well being of the Saints' star quarterback, the appeal for divine intervention as much an indictment on Brees' understudies as an endorsement for his brilliance. But Ryan Griffin...

Saints looking seriously at free agent backup quarterbacks

You need only look at what happened during the second half of the 2013 season in Green Bay to realize how important a backup quarterback is to an organization. Drew Brees is a MVP-caliber signal caller, but as of right now the only backup plan for a Brees injury is a rookie out of Tulane by the name of Ryan Griffin. Although Griffin has the profile of a NFL quarterback, it’s too...
