Saints Visit with Free Agent Tight End Benjamin Watson

The Saints recently hosted tight end Benjamin Watson on a free-agent visit, a source familiar with the situation confirmed Tuesday to Herbie Teope of the New Orleans Times-Picayune.

Field Yates of ESPN was first to report the visit.

The 6-foot-3, 251-pound Watson played three seasons with the Saints (2013-15), and enjoyed a career year in his final season in New Orleans with 74 catches for 825 yards and six touchdowns.

Watson, who turns 38 in December, entered the league in 2004 out of Georgia as a first-round pick (32nd overall) with the New England Patriots, where he spent six seasons (2004-09). His other stops include the Cleveland Browns (2010-12) and Baltimore Ravens (2016-17).
