Saints work out Antonio Brown, five other receivers
It looks as though the New Orleans Saints aren’t signing Wide Receiver Antonio Brown, at least not now.
The New Orleans Saints worked out the free-agent wide receiver today. He suited up for just one game this season due to a number of off-field incidents.
The Saints worked out six receivers today, including Brown. The others were Reggie Begelton, Travin Dural, Maurice Harris, Tim White, and former Saints receiver TommyLee Lewis, but Head Coach Sean Payton knew that there would be a stir surrounding Brown’s presence in the Big Easy.
Payton didn’t say much about Brown, instead saying they’re just evaluating players to better the team before the postseason. “We’ve done this at other positions and we’re looking closely all the time at ‘who are the players available, and how can they help us,’ especially as we get ready here for this postseason, and that was the purpose of today with the receiver position, we’ve done it really through the course of the season at other positions.”
According to Antonio Brown’s agent Drew Rosenhaus, Brown and the Saints have yet to agree on a contract, but both sides remain in discussions.
