According to ESPN's Chris Mortensen, the odds are favorable the Saints will sign quarterback Patrick Ramsey in mid-July. Ramsey would be in the mix to backup Drew Brees.
Ramsey has bounced around the league since being a first-round pick of the Redskins back in 2002. He displayed talent early in his career, but was banged around a lot in Steve Spurrier's offense and never seemed to recover. He's no stranger to New Orleans, having played his college ball at Tulane, and a homecoming might serve him well. Of course, if something happens to Drew Brees, the Saints are in deep trouble.
