Saints signed TE Ben Watson, formerly of the Ravens, to a one-year contract.
Watson spent the 2013-2015 seasons in New Orleans, posting a career-best 74-825-6 line in 2015 before signing with the Ravens and then tearing his Achilles' and missing 2016. He went 61-522-4 last year and still has juice at 37 years old. Expect the Saints to release Coby Fleener at some point, leaving Josh Hill and Watson atop the depth chart with Michael Hoomanawanui as a blocker. Mar 28 - 12:22 PM
