Saints Tried Out Eight Players Including CB David Amerson

According to Howard Balzer, the New Orleans Saints brought in eight free agents for workouts on Thursday including CB David Amerson.

The full list of tryouts for the Saints includes:

  1. CB David Amerson
  2. CB Demetri Goodson
  3. CB Prince Charles Iworah
  4. DT Joshua Frazier
  5. DT Tomasi Laulile
  6. DT Chris Okoye
  7. DE Frank Herron
  8. DE Kendal Vickers

New Orleans is in the market for cornerback help after the injury to Patrick Robinson.

Amerson, 26, is a former second-round pick of the Redskins back in 2013. Washington waived him during the 2015 season and he was later claimed off of waivers by the Redskins.

Amerson signed four-year, $38 million extension with close to $18 million guaranteed with the Raiders back in 2016. However, he was released last year and later caught on with the Chiefs.

Kansas City signed Amerson to a one-year deal worth up to $6 million during the offseason, but wound up being released coming out of the preseason.

In 2017, Amerson appeared in six games for the Raiders and recorded 18 tackles, no interceptions, a fumble recovery and four pass defenses.
