Report: Saints signing Terrance West, not Jamaal Charles,
after workouts – (Yardbarker)
Teope added that, “According to a source, Charles had a ‘very good workout and visit’ with the Saints and passed his physical, but at the moment a signing didn’t make sense for either side. This could be revisited at a later time, I’m told.”
Charles of course played with the Denver Broncos last year but didn’t carve out a big role with that offense. He would finish the year with just 425 yards and one touchdown from scrimmage.
West has spent the past two-plus seasons with the Baltimore Ravens. A calf injury kept him out of all but five games a year ago. During his tenure with Baltimore, he appeared in 27 games, started 17 games, rushing for 1,097 yards with seven touchdowns at a 3.9 yards-per-carry clip.
The Saints are adding a back due to the fact that Mark Ingram will be suspended the first four games of the coming season for failing a test for PEDs.
