According to Marvez, New Orleans is bringing in four free agent punters, but he didn’t offer any specific names.
Fields, 31, had two years remaining on his five-year, $14.424 million contract when the Dolphins released him in a move that freed up $1,750,000 in cap space.
In 2014, Fields appeared in all 16 games for the Dolphins and total 2339 yards punting and three touchbacks. Pro Football Focus had him rated as the No. 23 punter out of 38 qualifying players last year.
We’ll have more regarding who tried out for the Saints as the news is available.
