Former LSU Tiger Cole Tracy is trying to find his spot in the pro’s after not hearing his name called in the 2019 NFL Draft.

After the draft, Tracy spent the first weekend trying out with the Green Bay Packers at their rookie mini-camp. He left Wisconsin without a contract.

Now, Tracy will finish out another tryout with the New Orleans Saints.

“We have an interest in a kicker that could possibly be a kicker and a punter,” Saints Coach Sean Payton said. “We’ve got long snappers, we’ve got punters. I think if we were going to sign a kicker, a specialist, it probably would be someone we thought would be a third leg that would help us in training camp and do both.”
