The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports second-year undrafted free agent Ryan Griffin is making a "serious push" to back up Drew Brees.
Griffin has only journeyman veteran Luke McCown to beat out, so it's not surprising. Griffin has been shining in pad-less practices, but will have to translate that to camp and preseason games to really put the heat on McCown. Jun 10 - 7:33 PM

Saints promoted QB Ryan Griffin from the practice squad.

An undrafted free agent out of Tulane, Griffin was waived at final cuts. His promotion is a sign quarterback-needy teams were showing interest, as the Saints obviously don't need a third quarterback behind Drew Brees or Luke McCown.

Saints waived QB Ryan Griffin.

A somewhat big-named UDFA signee out of Tulane, Griffin didn't show enough to put any heat on Luke McCown for the backup job behind Drew Brees.

Saints signed Tulane QB Ryan Griffin.

Griffin (6-foot-3 7/8, 221) is a weak-armed thrower with some moxie. Tough in the pocket, Griffin exhibited quality touch-passing ability in Tulane's up-tempo offense, completing 62.2 percent of his attempts as a senior with 20 touchdowns and 11 interceptions. He helped himself during the pre-draft phase by earning MVP honors in the Texas vs. Nation all-star game. The Saints will try developing Griffin into a serviceable backup.

Tulane's Ryan Griffin has conducted more pre-draft workouts than any other quarterback in the draft.

ESPN's Chris Mortensen busted out the #sleeper hashtag for the Green Wave signal caller, who's met with the Jaguars, Eagles, Chargers and Steelers, presumably among others. A four-year starter at Tulane, Griffin stands in at 6-foot-4 and 221 pounds. He'll be a day-three pick.
