J.T. Barrett's career with the New Orleans Saints has begun. The former Ohio State star is in rookie minicamp.

The former Big Ten star was not selected in the 2018 NFL Draft. He signed with the Saints as an undrafted free agent.

Barrett has impressed so far at rookie minicamp. He's reportedly looked sharp according to those close to the team.

The former Buckeyes' standout is rocking a new jersey number in the NFL, too.

Barrett, who wore No. 16 in college, appears to be wearing No. 5 with the Saints.
