Summary

Ben Watson signed a one year contract with the Saints in late March. He previously played with the team from 2013-2015 and was their second leading receiver in 2015 with 74 receptions. Watson, a very intelligent player enters his 15th NFL season at the age of 37. It seems doubtful that he can be a consistent producer this year, but he was largely written off in 2014 and still caught over 60 passes in two of the three last seasons. His 2015 production is by far the best the Saints have had from the tight end position since Jimmy Graham departed. (May 4)
