A league source tells NFLTR that the Saints are signing Marshall FB/TE Ryan Yurachek to a contract following the team’s rookie minicamp this weekend.
The Saints actually listed Yurachek as a fullback on their tryouts list, despite the fact that he played tight end at Marshall.
Yurachek should get an opportunity to compete with veteran FB Zach Line for a job this summer.
Yurachek wound up going undrafted out of Marshall a few weeks ago before securing the tryout with the Saints. He was a first-team Conference USA selection during his senior year.
During his four-year college career at Marshall, Yurachek caught 143 passes for 1,354 (9.5 YPC) to go along with 26 touchdowns. He also rushed for 40 yards on three carries and no touchdowns.
