Former Penn State guard Eric Wilson has signed with the New Orleans Saints as an undrafted free agent.

The Minnesota native began his collegiate career at Harvard where he was an All-Ivy League performer. He transferred to Penn State following the cancelation of the 2020 season in the Ivy League and took control of a starting job just a few drives into the 2021 campaign. While he looked rusty at times due to not seeing game action for over a year, he showed enough for an NFL team to give him a shot at making their club.

The Nittany Lions have had success getting undrafted guys roster spots on the Saints - with Blake Gillikin and Juwan Johnson both having had roles with the club this past season.
