Antonio Brown worked out for the New Orleans Saints last week and reports are now surfacing that the Saints were “blown away” by Brown’s workout and want to sign the free agent wide out.
Adam Schefter said the following on ESPN’s Sunday NFL Countdown and also provided a report on a workout Brown had with New Orleans on Friday:
“The Saints worked out Antonio Brown on Friday, and he caught every single thing that was thrown to him. He blew away the Saints in the workout, we knew he would.
“The issue is the NFL. The Saints would like to sign Antonio Brown, but they’re waiting for the NFL to issue a ruling, and there’s been no clarity from the NFL as to when the league might make a ruling on the sexual assault allegations that were levied against Antonio Brown in the NFL’s active investigation.
“So as long as the investigation is ongoing, the Saints can’t do anything, but they would be interested in signing him, if only he were free.”
Brown, 31, is a seven-time Pro Bowler and four-time All-Pro.
