If anyone thought Yvette Girouard wasn’t back home on April 17 — 1,285 collegiate victories after being challenged to start a Title IX-fulfilling program with few players and fewer resources — they must not have noticed the tear tracks.

Former Tulane quarterback Ryan Griffin and ex-Louisiana-Monroe tight end Keavon Milton are among 13 undrafted free agents who have agreed to sign rookie contracts with the New Orleans Saints.

When Texas safety Kenny Vaccaro visited with the New Orleans Saints in the lead up to the NFL draft, and talked with new defensive coordinator Rob Ryan over lunch, he left sensing he'd be back before long.

The 33-year-old player did so not from an office building but from Machu Picchu, Peru, where he signed the contract Monday.

The 6-foot, 222-pound Ivory joined the Saints as an undrafted free agent out of Tiffin (Ohio) in 2010 and has run the ball 256 times for 1,307 yards and eight touchdowns, averaging 5.1 yards per carry.
