Per NFLuk.com, Bristol Academy Pride and Bristol Aztecs Youth alum, Alex Jenkins, has signed to the New Orleans Saints Practice squad for the upcoming NFL season.
Following news that Alex would be joining an NFL programme, there’s been much speculation as to where the University of Incarnate Word Cardinal would be balling this summer.
As it is, Alex will join two other Brits, Alex Gray and Efe Obada, in the new NFL International Player Pathway Programme that sees each NFL Franchise of the NFC South allocated an extra practice squad member.
