Saints Also Hosted TE Bear Pascoe & Austin Pettis For Workouts

Field Yates (per Evan Woodbery of the Times Picayune) reports that the Saints also worked out TE Bear Pascoe, TE Gerell Robinson and WR Austin Pettis on Tuesday.

Pascoe, 29, is a former sixth-round pick of the 49ers back in 2009. He spent a number of year with the Giants before signing a one-year contract with the Falcons last year.

The Bears elected to sign him to a one-year contract this past April, but he was unfortunately among their final roster cuts.

In 2014, Pascoe appeared in all 16 games for the Falcons, but recorded just two receptions for three yards and a touchdown. Pro Football Focus has him down for playing 148 snaps last year to go along with a very respectable rating as a run-blocker.

Pettis, 27, is a former 2011 third-round pick of the Rams. The Chargers wound up signing him to a contract in January to add depth at receiver.

However, he too was among the team’s final roster cuts from this past weekend.

In 2014, Pettis appeared in five games and caught 12 passes for 118 yards receiving and one touchdown for the Rams.
