Saints sign 3rd round draft choice, Johnny Patrick


METAIRIE, La. (AP) - The agent for Saints third-round draft choice Johnny Patrick says his client has agreed to contract terms. Agent Andy Simms says the cornerback out of Louisville agreed to the deal Thursday, the same day the Saints reported for training camp.

Earlier, the Saints announced agreements with seventh-round draft choices Greg Romeus and Nate Bussey.

Romeus is a 6-foot-5, 267-pound defensive end out of Pittsburgh, where he was among the Panthers' top defensive players before back and knee injuries caused him to miss most of his senior season.

As a junior, he was the 2009 co-Big East defensive player of the year, with 43 tackles, including 11.5 tackles for losses and eight sacks. Bussey is a 6-2, 220-pound linebacker out of Illinois.
