Malik Foreman had an up-and-down career at the University of Tennessee, but there is no questioning the fact that he’s a talented player. Despite an occasionally shaky senior season, Foreman ran a sub-4.4 forty and jumped more than 35 inches in the vertical leap.
That, it appears, is enough to get him a shot in the NFL, as it was reported on Saturday by The Advocate’s Nick Underhill that Foreman would be signing with the New Orleans Saints:

During his four-year career with the Volunteers, Foreman compiled three interceptions and three fumble recoveries. Most memorably, Foreman made an incredible play near the end of regulation against Texas A&M in 2016 when he punched the ball out from Aggies running back Trayveon Williams, forcing a touchback. Though Texas A&M would go on to win the game, it displayed the type of effort and hustle Foreman was willing to give for his team.
The terms of Foreman’s deal with the Saints were not disclosed.
