METAIRIE, La. (AP) -- The New Orleans Saints have agreed to contract terms with 17 undrafted free agents, who'll join the club's six draft picks and selected try out players at rookie camp this weekend, general manager Mickey Loomis announced Monday.
The 6-foot-6 Coleman finished his college career tied for the Rutgers all-time touchdown lead with 20.
The 6-2, 302-pound Armstrong, named by the Rimington Award committee as the nation's top Division II center, could compete with another former Grand Valley State player, Tim Lelito, for the starting center job vacated by the departure of Brian de la Puente in free agency.
Among the 17 new rookies are three linebackers, three defensive linemen, three defensive backs, two receivers, two tight ends, two offensive linemen, a quarterback and running back.
The defensive backs include two players from relatively small programs: safety Pierre Warren, who played for Jacksonville State of the NCAA's Football Championship Subdivision; and Brian Dixon from Division II national champion Northwest Missouri State. The other is Kansas State safety Ty Zimmerman.
