The Saints have signed Tramain Hall and Aaron Hosack to two year contracts today 6/29, according to www.neworleanssaints.com. Both are wide receivers from NFL Europa.

Aaron Hosack
Aaron Hosack
Hosack is a pretty big wide receiver standing 6’5” and weighing 229 pounds. Last season he played pretty well for the Frankfurt Galaxy and was part of a team that went 7-3 and appeared in their second straight World Bowl. He caught 9 passes for 289 yards and 4 touchdowns. He was a pretty explosive player at times last season averaging 32.1 yards per catch.

Hosack had a great year in 2006 with the Galaxy and helped lead them to a World Bowl Championship. He caught 36 balls, amassed 473 yards and scored 4 touchdowns. He was voted onto the All-NFL Europe team that season. Following his stellar year he was picked up by the Vikings and attended training camp in Minnesota. He didn’t make the team though as he was released before the start of the regular season. In 2004 Hosack was on the Viking’s practice squad for a good part of the year.

Tramain Hall
Tramain Hall
Hall, also 25, is quite a bit smaller than Hosack at 5’10” and 190 lbs. Last season he played for the Cologne Centurions and caught 16 passes for 273 yards and 2 touchdowns. He brings something to the table that Hosack does not. He also returns punts and kicks. Last season for the Centurions he returned 9 kickoffs for 217 yards and 4 punts for 68 yards.

In 2006 he was in training camp with the Titans. He played his college ball at North Carolina State and caught 125 balls for 1,466 yards and 12 touchdowns.
