RYAN GRIFFIN RUMORS & GOSSIP

Evaluating Saints Pick No. 75: Garett Grayson

View image | gettyimages.com There will be a day where Drew Brees will no longer be taking snaps as the New Orleans Saints quarterback but until then the Saints must find someone to inherit the throne. That’s what the Saints might have just done, the Saints decided last night with the 75th pick to draft who may very well be Drew Brees’ successor, Garett Grayson, QB, Colorado...

Saints draft QB Garrett Grayson in 3rd round

The third quarterback taken in the draft is by the Saints in the 3rd round in Garrett Grayson. I don’t view this position as a need and I feel fine with Luke McCown and Ryan Griffin as the backup situation, so I’m not a huge fan of this pick. Grayson could easily end up on the practice squad, with someone else, or on IR in 2015. Either that, or this will force the Saints to keep...

QB Ryan Griffin promoted to active roster, John Jenkins to IR

No real surprise here as Jenkins missed practice all week with an abdominal issue. Run defense should be spotty. Too bad because Jenkins was playing pretty well lately. Doubt Griffin will see any action Sunday. #Saints place NT John Jenkins on injured reserve & sign QB Ryan Griffin to active roster http://t.co/5SOcr627tu pic.twitter.com/WFq4lRRnCa — New Orleans Saints (@Saints...

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 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...

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...
