The Saints kicked off their offseason by releasing veteran guard Jahri Evans, who eventually went on to sign with the Seahawks before getting cut at the end of the summer.
That leaves Evans as a free agent looking for work, a quest that brought him back to New Orleans on Tuesday. According to multiple reports, the Saints worked out Evans as part of a session that featured numerous familiar names in search of homes for the 2016 season.
The Saints have struggled to find the right combination on the interior of their line with 2015 first-round pick Andrus Peat, Tim Lelito and Senio Kelemete among the options. Nick Underhill of the New Orleans Advocate reports that Khalif Barnes, who was cut by the Saints over the weekend, was also part of the workout.
Wide receiver Rueben Randle, most recently of the Eagles, took part as well and Underhill adds long snappers Aaron Brewer and Thomas Gafford; offensive linemen Mike Liedtke and Bryce Harris; cornerbacks Darrin Walls, B.W. Webb and Sterling Moore; and wide receivers Nate Washington and Greg Little to the list.
Some of those workouts are likely about updating emergency lists, although the Saints have already made some changes to their 53-man roster so some players at the bottom of it could be in danger of losing their jobs.
