The New Orleans Saints have signed free agent wide receiver Brandon Marshall. He has signed a one-year deal with the team.
During a workout with the franchise last week — which also included Dez Bryant and Kamar Aiken — he impressed the Saints brass. However, one day later, they elected to sign Bryant.
On Friday, the former Dallas Cowboys player torn his Achilles. He reportedly reported to the Saints overweight, according to reports.
This caused the Saints to be in the market for another wide receiver to be opposite of Michael Thomas. The team hopes that Marshall can do that.
He would replace Bryant and Cameron Meredith, who also suffered a season-ending injury.
Marshall last played with the Seattle Seahawks, who had signed with to a one-year deal in the off-season. He was frustrated with his lack of playing time, which led to his release.
The 34-year-old Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania native made six appearances, including two starts, with the Seahawks. He had 11 receptions for 136 yards and a touchdown.
However, in the past three games with the team, he was targeted five times and two receptions for 16 yards. His best game with the Seahawks came in the season-opener against the Denver Nuggets when he had three receptions for 46 yards with a touchdown in the 27-24 loss.
Thomas is the Saints leading receiver with 950 yards. Running back Alvin Kamara is second with 473 yards, while tight end Ben Watson is third with 293 yards. Behind Thomas, Tre’Quan Smith is the second leading receiver with 214 yards.
