Saints Worked Out Nine Players Including DB Briean Boddy-Calhoun

     

According to Howard Balzer, the Saints brought in nine players for workouts on Wednesday, including DBs Briean Boddy-Calhoun and Kayvon Webster. 

The full list of tryouts includes:

  1. DB Briean Boddy-Calhoun
  2. S Trae Elston
  3. WR Jonathan Duhart
  4. WR Jake Lampman
  5. WR Charone Peake
  6. CB Captain Munnerlyn
  7. CB Kayvon Webster
  8. FB Ricky Ortiz
  9. TE Jason Vander Laan 

Of this group, New Orleans signed Elston and Vander Laan to their practice squad. 

Boddy-Calhoun, 26, wound up signing on with the Jaguars as an undrafted free agent out of Minnesota back in 2016. He was waived a few months later and claimed off of waivers by the Browns.

Cleveland declined to tender Boddy-Calhoun a restricted contract, which allowed him to become an unrestricted free agent. He signed a one-year deal with the Texans back in March but was among their final roster cuts coming out of the preseason. 

Since becoming a free agent, Boddy-Calhoun has worked out or visited with the Cardinals, Vikings, and Eagles but left each meeting without a contract. 

In 2018, Boddy-Calhoun appeared in all 16 games for the Browns and recorded 56 tackles, no interceptions, a forced fumble, and two pass defenses.

Webster, 28, is a former third-round pick of the Broncos back in 2013. He played out his rookie contract before signing a two-year, $7.75 million deal that included $4.25 million guaranteed with the Rams in 2017.

Webster was set to make a base salary of $3 million for the 2018 season when the Rams released him during the offseason. He spent last year with the Texans before the Saints signed him to a contract this summer. 

Unfortunately, Webster was released coming out of the preseason.

In 2018, Webster appeared in two games for the Texans and recorded one tackle and no interceptions.
