Saints include paralyzed safety Devon Walker in media guide

In May, the New Orleans Saints made a classy gesture when they announced they had signed Devon Walker — a Tulane safety who was paralyzed from the neck down after colliding with a teammate during a 2012 game. 

Back then, Saints coach Sean Peyton said Walker, who graduated from the New Orleans university with a degree in cell and molecular biology, “is not only an inspiration to his coaches and teammates at Tulane, but to all of us. Devon’s character, determination, intelligence and work ethic are everything that we look for in a New Orleans Saint when we sign a player. This is the least we can do to recognize Devon and these attributes that we want all of our players to have.”

The Saints continued to recognize Walker by including him in their team’s media guide.
