Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports that the Dodgers have signed free agent NFL safety Jarrad Page to a minor league contract as an outfielder. As our friends at ProFootballTalk noted last weekend, Page recently attended an open tryout with the club.

Page, who batted .233 with three home runs, 19 RBI and 46 strikeouts over 120 at-bats during his lone season with UCLA in 2004, was drafted three different times by MLB teams. The Angels invested a seventh-round pick in 2006, but he ultimately decided to pursue a career in the NFL as a member of the Kansas City Chiefs.

Page, 27, appeared in 11 games last season between the Philadelphia Eagles and Minnesota Vikings.

    Looks like he’s as good of baseball player as an NFL safety. Lol

    He couldn’t hit something that was 6′ 2″ 220 lbs. How’s he going to hit a baseball?

      I think that Tom Brady would disagree with you.

    I didn’t know that the Eagles and Vikings played against each other 11 times last year. Wow.
