Very Cool: Saints Sign Paralyzed former Tulane Safety


The NFL and it's teams, players and coaches aren't always angels, but nothing makes any of them happier than doing something good for someone else who needs it.

That's how former Tulane Green Wave Safety Devon Walker, paralyzed from the waste down after a hit in a September 2012 football game, found himself heading towards the New Orleans Saints practice facility Saturday afternoon. Right after his college graduation ceremony.

Walker got his degree in cell and molecular biology and then thought he was heading for some celebratory Oysters with his family only to find out he had a planned meeting scheduled.

That meeting with New Orleans Saints G.M Mickey Loomis and Head Coach Sean Payton. Both men had a gift waiting for Walker.

The gift, a contract for him to sign so he could become a Saint on Day 1 of the teams Rookie Camp.

Of course Walker signed and from all reports, the smile still hasn't left his face.

Though those same reports also say he's still looking for those Oysters too...
