Saints drop rookie receiver Brandon Coleman

The Saints have had plenty of success in recent years with first-year receivers.  Brandon Coleman won’t be one of them.

Per a league source, Coleman has been waived.

At six feet, six inches, Coleman could become in time an intriguing weapon.  As recently explained by Katherine Terrell of the New Orleans Times-Picayune, drops in camp made it much more difficult for Coleman to make the roster.

If he clears waivers, Coleman has a good change of landing on the practice squad.
