01:51 PM ET 04.28 | The New Orleans Saints have brought in former Stanford outside linebacker Chase Thomas as an undrafted free agent, the player indicated on his Twitter account Saturday. Thomas said "everything happens for a reason," before putting up a Saints hashtag. Thomas, an outside linebacker out of Stanford, has been mentioned among the best of the undrafted class. Thomas should have plenty of opportunity to compete for a roster spot with the Saints, who will likely use him as a special teams player initially.

Thomas was a much better defender in the Pac-12 than Dion Jordan.

Some draft boards had him going in the 2nd or 3rd round. Very surprising that he fell completely out. There must be something we don't know.

I don't know why the 49ers didn't take him as one of their late round picks.

These interns are funny, they automatically assume that signing as an undrafted free agent assures somebody of a roster spot. Uh, no...this guy might not make the team at all.

Agreed, but it's the Saints and he plays defense...............it's his best opportunity in the league to make a team.
