Saints invite Northern Illinois DE Izayah Green-May to rookie minicamp

The New Orleans Saints invited Northern Illinois defensive end Izayah Green-May to their rookie minicamp, per KPRC 2 Houston’s Aaron Wilson, where he’ll have the opportunity to compete for a contract offer. He’s light by their standards at just 248 pounds, but Green-May’s frame (6-foot-5 with 33.1-inch arms) suggests he can bulk up if he shows enough to warrant a longer look.

He’s coming off a career year with 34 tackles (5 tackles for loss), 3 sacks, and a pair of fumble recoveries in 2022 after transferring from Wisconsin, where he was a backup from 2018 to 2021. The Saints made a big investment at defensive end by drafting Notre Dame’s Isaiah Foskey in the second round and may be looking to sign a free agent, but there’s room for one more if Green-May shows he belongs.
