WWLTV in New Orleans is reporting that the Saints have finally found a backup for Drew Brees: ninth-year pro Patrick Ramsey. The former first-round pick of the Redskins is a native of Ruston, LA. Ramsey started off and on the first three years of his career, but he was often hindered by injuries.
When Ramsey’s career hit a crossroads in ’05 (his final seasonin Washington), it was thought that he would dwindle into a backup. That’s what happened – sort of. Over the last five seasons, Ramsey has been with the Jets, Broncos, Titans and Lions. He has made zero starts and has appeared in only four games (none since 2007).
