Saints coach Sean Payton said this week that adding a tight end was a “must” for the team this offseason and the Saints got one on Wednesday.
PFT has learned, via a league source, that Benjamin Watson has agreed to a one-year deal. It will be Watson’s second stint in New Orleans as he played for the Saints from 2013-2015.
Watson wasn’t the only former Saint that the team showed interest in bringing back this offseason. They pursued Jimmy Graham before Graham agreed to a three-year deal with the Packers early in free agency.
