Saints finalize signings of 2020 draft class
NEW ORLEANS, La. (WVUE) - As the Saints report to training camp, they will be doing so with their full rookie draft class after the club announced Monday morning that all four selections have been signed.
Offensive lineman Cesar Ruiz headlines the group after being drafted in the first round out of Michigan. Ruiz will likely be thrust into competition to fill a starting role created by Larry Warford’s release. Ruiz is joined by third-round linebacker Zack Baun out of Wisconsin, third-round tight end Adam Trautman out of Dayton and seventh-round quarterback Tommy Stevens who played at Penn State and Mississippi State.
All four rookies signed four-year deals but the amount each player signed for was not disclosed.
New Orleans has not seen a draft pick miss time in camp due to a contract holdout since Cameron Jordan missed the first five practices of 2011 training camp.
