METAIRIE, La. (AP) New Orleans Saints general manager Mickey Loomis says the club has signed the second of its two first-round draft choices, offensive tackle Ryan Ramczyk.
Loomis says the 6-foot-6, 314-pound Ramczyk, who was drafted 32nd overall out of Wisconsin, has signed a four-year contract. Ramczyk's signing means all seven of New Orleans' draft choices are under contract in advance of training camp.
Ramczyk could compete for a significant role this season because starting left tackle Terron Armstead will miss at least half of the regular season while recovering from shoulder surgery.
