The New Orleans Saints signed second-round draft pick Alontae Taylor to a contract on Tuesday, the same day the team’s rookies reported to training camp.

Taylor posted a photo of the signing on Twitter, which was later confirmed by NewOrleans.football. The cornerback was the last member of the Saints’ draft class to sign a contract.

Taylor recorded 162 tackles and four interceptions in 45 games over four seasons at Tennessee.
