Patrick Ramsey, who is expected to sign with the Saints, and second-year player Chase Daniel will compete to become Drew Brees' top backup in training camp. The rules of the uncapped year made it difficult for the club to pursue other free-agent quarterbacks earlier this offseason, but that restriction expires July 22. Word that the Saints were considering Ramsey, who hasn't played in more than two regular-season games since 2005, spread months ago. While Ramsey hasn't played much in recent years, he does have starting experience from the early part of his career, and Daniel, who has never taken a snap in a regular-season game, could end up on the practice squad again if he doesn't win the job. The team and its fans have to hope neither Ramsey, Daniel nor 2010 seventh-round pick Sean Canfield, another candidate for the practice squad, has to take a snap in a meaningful game this year.
