It’s an incomplete list, and more importantly unofficial. 80-plus players try out at rookie minicamps with just a handful of them signed to the team, so there’s plenty of duplicate numbers simply because there aren’t enough to go around. Do not go out buying any jerseys until the Saints make it official after roster cuts in September.
- #5 Quarterback J.T. Barrett, Ohio State Buckeyes
- #10 Wide receiver Tre’Quan Smith, UCF Knights
- #18 Wide receiver Keith Kirkwood, Temple Owls
- #27 Defensive back Natrell Jamerson, Wisconsin Badgers
- #38 Running back Boston Scott, Louisiana Tech Bulldogs
- #39 Defensive back Kamrin Moore, Boston College Eagles
- #46 Tight end Cameron Serigne, Wake Forest Demon Deacons
- #58 Linebacker Colton Jumper, Tennessee Volunteers
- #62 Defensive lineman Henry Mondeaux, Oregon Ducks
- #64 Offensive lineman Will Clapp, LSU Tigers
- #73 Offensive lineman Rick Leonard, Florida State Seminoles
- #83 Tight end Deon Yelder, Western Kentucky Hilltoppers
- #92 Edge defender Marcus Davenport, Texas-San Antonio Roadrunners
As always, a handful of notable veteran free agents are trying out at minicamp:
- #28 Defensive back Matt Elam, Baltimore Ravens
- #75 Defensive lineman Tyrunn Walker, Los Angeles Rams
Additionally, a few of the team’s big free agent signees have shared their jersey numbers on social media:
- #56 Linebacker Demario Davis, formerly of the New York Jets
- #81 Wide receiver Cameron Meredith, formerly of the Chicago Bears

Quick takes - I really hope Boston Scott and Kamrin Moore can get out of those numbers soon. We don’t need the curses of Travaris Cadet and Brandon Browner hanging over our heads. I would much prefer Marcus Davenport get out of that hefty #92 and into the much more aesthetic #99, but it looks like practice squad linebacker Adam Bighill is still holding onto it.
Like I said, we’ll know more soon, and don’t take this as gospel. It’s just another fun data point to keep track of.
