The New Orleans Saints have agreed to a contract with former Houston Roughnecks DL Jack Heflin. The Illinois native enjoyed a decent college career with three years at Northern Iowa and a year at Iowa.
Heflin signed with the Green Bay Packers after his college career before being cut. He also had a very brief stint with the Giants before suiting up for the Roughnecks. Heflin got his chance to shine in the XFL and took home the honor of All-XFL team.
Heflin has a long journey ahead of him to crack the practice squad or opening-day roster, but if he’s able to, it will make for one heck of a story!
