Steve: Saints rookie profiles - Logan Gilgore

The competition to be Drew Brees’ back-up may be between Luke McCown and Ryan Griffin, but Logan Kilgore is out to show he has what it takes to be an NFL quarterback, even if it’s not in New Orleans.
 
The former Middle Tennessee State quarterback beat out former LSU Tiger Jordan Jefferson and former Tennessee Titan Rusty Smith in the Saints rookie camp to earn an invite to training camp.

He played 4 seasons of college ball, and was the starter in 3 of them. Kilgore passed for 7,849 yards with 56 touchdowns and 36 interceptions while completing 61% of his passes. The kid is no dummy either.  He received his MBA in December, while carrying a 4.0 grade point average.

Kilgore stands 6-foot-2, 215 pounds and is 24 years old.  His chances of making the Saints roster, honestly, are slim to none.  I don’t think he’ll even get practice squad consideration, but he could latch on with another ballclub in the league if he is able to impress in training camp.
