Saints Negotiate Contract with DT Dexter Larimore

And just like that, the Saints have another undrafted free agent under their wing. This time, it's Ohio State DT Dexter Larimore. From Larry Holder:

Ohio State DT Dexter Larimore set to join the New Orleans Saints

The Saints get more young talent at positions of need. First a SS and now a DT. Make the jump to see more of his bio.

From CBS Sports:

03/15/2011 - Ohio State Pro day: NT Dexter Larimore (6-2 5/8, 319), the only one of these players not at the combine, ran a 5.11 40-yard dash, along with a 29 1/2-inch vertical jump, 8.4 broad, 4.57 short shuttle, and 7.41 in the three-cone drill. He also rattled off 32 reps in the bench press, and probably got himself drafted with these numbers. I cold see him as a fourth-rounder or below. - Gil Brandt, NFL.com

From NFL Draft Scout:

2009: 20 tackles for the Rose Bowl champs ... left the Indiana game with a knee sprain and missed the next four contests ... returned to action in November ... third-year letterwinner...2008: Rotating starter at defensive tackle ... 15 tackles, 3.5 TFL for season ...2007: Redshirt freshman who was a contributor along the defensive line ... 16 tackles, 5.5 TFL for season ...2006: Redshirted ... spent the year gaining strength and knowledge of OSU's system.

Finally, here's a story on Dexter from Cleveland.com.

So how do you feel about Dexter Larimore, Saints fans? Do you think he has a chance of making the roster? Have you ever even heard about him before today?
