According to latest reports, free agent wide receiver Jamarko Simmons has been offered a chance to try if he could put on the New Orleans Saints jersey. The Saints are scheduled to hold rookie minicamp next week, and Simmons is allowed to take part in with newly drafted young players.
Formerly a star wide receiver with the Western Michigan University, Simmons unfortunately did not have a good start with his professional football career. With no team picking him after last year’s NFL draft, he became an undrafted free agent and signed with the Green Bay Packers as a priority free agent. However, he injured his back last summer and even did not get a chance to show what he can do for the team before the Packers eventually released him in August. Afterwards, he had a surgery on the back and seemed to have a good recovery.
Actually, the Saints did not offer any promise except for the tryout in rookie minicamp, but the tryout itself means quite a lot to Simmons as it is his first one. Definitely he will try his best of impress Saints’ coaches as much as he can during the minicamp so that he could have a chance to play for the Super Bowl XLIV champions.
