The New Orleans Saints are signing QB Griffin Neal to a three-year contract, according to his college coach, Terry Horan.
So proud of our Cobber alum and former QB Griffin Neal…just signed a three year contract with the New Orleans Saints #hardworkpaysoff

Griffin wasn’t drafted last year and this will be his first opportunity with an NFL team.
It’s likely that Griffin will open training camp as the team’s No. 4 quarterback behind Drew Brees, Luke McCown and Garrett Grayson, so he’ll have his work cut out for him to earn a roster spot this summer.
Last year, Griffin played for the Hildesheim Invaders of the German Football League.
During his four-year career at Concordia, Griffin threw for 5,614 yards while completing 63.7 percent of his passes to go along with 47 touchdowns and 23 interceptions. Griffin also ran for 1,331 yards and 22 touchdowns for Concordia.
