Why J.T. Gray is the unsung superstar of the Saints

Why J.T. Gray is the unsung superstar of the Saints

J.T. Gray doesn’t get the love and recognition that some of the best safeties in the league receive, but he does the job anyways. 

The New Orleans Saints missed the postseason for the first time since 2016 last year. J.T. Gray, however, was a bright spot and gave Saints fans something to look forward to in the post-Drew Brees era. 

After playing college football at Mississippi State, J.T. Gray failed to get drafted in 2018 but got picked up by the Saints shortly. The 26-year-old defensive back played five games on special teams before getting waived. 

J.T. Gray worked his way back to the good graces of the team by excelling with the practice squad and eventually received a reserve/future contract in 2019. 

The hard-working Fan Arch athlete proved his worth that year, suiting up in 16 games as a core special-teamer.

 

J.T. Gray recorded 16 special teams tackles and was named second-team All-Pro as a special teamer.

The Saints brass rewarded his efforts by upgrading his contract with a two-year, $4 million extension. He was also a natural leader on and off the gridiron and was elected team captain for the 2021 season. 

Are you as determined to achieve success as J.T. Gray? Then FanArch has the perfect merchandise for you. We got shirts, hoodies, and other goodies featuring J.T. Gray’s brand. Choose among our wide selection, including our best-selling ”Goals, Challenges, and Success” design. 

With his confidence at an all-time high entering the 2021 season, J.T. Gray enjoyed a banner campaign and was considered one of the NFL’s elite players on special teams. The 6-foot safety led the NFL with 19 special teams tackles in 16 games and added three defensive stops. 

J.T. Gray was even selected as a Pro Bowl starter for the first time in his career and was the Saints’ only first-team member.

In 53 career games so far, J.T. Gray has impressive totals of 44 special teams stops, one blocked punt, three fumble recoveries, five defensive tackles, and one pass defensed.

The Saints are still figuring out its new identity following the departure of long-time pillars Drew Brees and Sean Payton. One thing’s for sure. J.T. Gray will be an important piece in New Orleans in the coming years.
