Saints Workout Former Steelers Troubled Wide Out Antonio Brown

It was a wild day for the Saints, as the team worked out former Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown.

Brown, who was traded by the Steelers to the Raiders, who cut him and then he inked with the Patriots, has been the source of all kinds of controversy all season.

Here’s the layout of the day, which ended with Sean Payton saying that they (as of now) don’t have any intentions of inking Brown.

Sean Payton Says Drew Brees’ Knee is ‘Fine’ Despite Inflammation

Saints head coach Sean Payton doesn’t seem too worried about Drew Brees’ knee, saying that the QB is “fine” despite popping up on the injury report with knee inflammation according to Katherine Terrell of The Athletic.

Payton added that the Saints just listed him on the injury report in case he had to put a sleeve on for practice. Brees is good to go for the team’s Week 17 matchup against the Panthers.

The offense is still battling for better playoff seeding and is expected to be full go. The bigger question is whether or not Brees and the passing game will have to put the ball in the air very often against the Panthers’ run-funnel defense.

Saints Claim Former Giants Cornerback Janoris Jenkins Off Waivers

Ex-Giants cornerback Janoris Jenkins was claimed on waivers Monday by the Saints, ESPN reports.
Jenkins was expected to join a playoff-bound team and will do so with the Saints, who enter Monday night’s game against the Colts at 10-3 and in first place in the NFC South.

Since New Orleans has yet to play its Week 15 game, the Jenkins claim won’t be made official until Tuesday.

The Giants waived Jenkins Friday, two days after he made an inappropriate remark to a fan on Twitter. Jenkins called a critical fan a “retard” when taking exception to questioning about why the stats Jenkins was using to showcase his effectiveness weren’t contributing to victories.

Jenkins, 31, said Thursday that the usage of the word was “slang” that is “just part of my culture.”

Giants coach Pat Shurmur met with Jenkins on Wednesday and said in a statement Friday that Jenkins’ refusal to admit that what he did was wrong led to his release.
