Saints Worked Out Six WRs Including Antonio Brown

     

Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that the Saints are working out free agent WR Antonio Brown on Friday. According to Schefter, the Saints are doing their due diligence on Brown.

The full list of tryouts for the Saints, per Katherine Terrell, includes:

  1. WR Reggie Begelton
  2. WR Travin Dural
  3. WR Maurice Harris
  4. WR Tommylee Lewis
  5. WR Tim White
  6. WR Antonio Brown

Brown posted a photo of a Saints’ injury waiver on Instagram earlier in the day. 

Recent reports had said that a few teams had interest in Brown while the NFL finished up their investigation. However, the NFL would likely place him on the commissioner’s exempt list if a team were to sign him before they conclude their investigation. 

Since being released from the Patriots and filing grievances against both Oakland and New England seeking to recoup $40 million in salary, Brown has kept a lower profile, though there have still been occasional outbursts on social media.

Brown, 31, is a former sixth-round pick of the Steelers back in 2010. He was in the third year of his five-year, $72.71 million contract when the Steelers traded him to the Raiders back in March. 

The Raiders later signed Brown to a new contract worth $50.125 million and includes $30.125 million guaranteed. However, Oakland made the decision to release Brown before the start of the season and he later signed a one-year deal worth up to $15 million with the Patriots.

Brown lasted just 11 days in New England.  

In 2019, Brown appeared in one game for the Patriots and caught four passes for 56 yards receiving and one touchdown.
