Despite assembling a strong list of undrafted free agents in the aftermath of last week's NFL Draft, the New Orleans Saints weren't done with their moves, adding two more players to that pool. The team announced that it has also signed Manase Foketi and Moses McCray.
Foketi, a 6-3 310 former teammate of Saints Running Back Khiry Robinson at West Texas A&M, is an offensive lineman who spent portions of last season in the organizations of the Buffalo Bills and Denver Broncos. The team has also brought in former West Texas A&M Kicker Sergio Castillo ahead of rookie minicamps. Before heading to West TAMU, Foketi spent time at Kansas State, the same school that produced Tavon Rooks, whom the Saints used a 6th round pick to select last week . Foketi started every game at Left tackle for the Wildcats in 2010, and helped pave the way for a rushing attack that finished 2nd in the Big 12, and 20th nationally. After an injury cut short his 2011 season, Foketi landed at West Texas A&M where he played out his collegiate eligibility. Saints G.M. Mickey Loomis and the team's brass are still on the lookout for available talent.
McCray, a defensive tackle who played at Akron, checks in at 6-2 318. He began his career at Florida State before transferring to play for the Zips. McCray's time in Tallahassee was riddled by injury, seeing him plummet down the 'Noles depth chart. In search of playing time and a fresh start, he transferred to Akron and played out his final year of eligibility, compiling 24 tackles and two tackles for loss. He returned to the Florida State campus to take part in the Seminoles' pro day workouts, where he recorded 32 bench reps and ran a 5.3 second 40-yard dash.
Both players will look to compete for a spot in training camp, and into preseason. Following these moves, The Saints currently have 87 players on their roster.
