Finally, the New Orleans Saints have a veteran backup quarterback. After months of speculation that it would happen at some point, the team just announced it has agreed to a one-year contract with Patrick Ramsey.

A native of Ruston, La., and a Tulane product, Ramsey instantly moves into the No. 2 spot behind Drew Brees. Mark Brunell had held that role the past two years, but the Saints wanted someone a bit younger. Ramsey has appeared in 37 career games with 24 starts while spending time with the Redskins, Jets, Broncos, Titans and Lions. His career passer rating is 74.9.
