Saints Rookie Kicker Blake Grupe Was Mistaken For A Fan By Stadium Security After GW FG vs Chiefs

New Orleans Saints kicker Blake Grupe had quite the NFL debut after he kicked a game-winning 31-yard field goal during the Saints preseason win over the Kansa City Chiefs.

But despite the awesome moment, many around the Caesars Superdome still don’t know who he is, including the stadium security.

Grupe said on Twitter he was questioned both before and after the game by security. Some members of security apparently believed the undrafted rookie, listed at 5-foot-7 and 156 pounds, was a fan.

“Stay humble. Thankful. Great team win!” Grupe tweeted.


The Saints signed Grupe as an undrafted free agent out of Notre Dame in April after he was perfect on 49 extra-point attempts last season.

Grupe could be competing with former Pro Bowler Wil Lutz, who has held the position for the Saints since 2016, for the role of the team’s primary kicker, so it seems security will have the opportunity to become more familiar with him as New Orleans’ preseason continues.
