Saints News Network |  | New Orleans Saints Saints part ways with a veteran receiver and
offensive lineman.

NFL reporter
Field Yates of ESPN first reported on Sunday that the New
Orleans Saints
have elected to part ways with wide
receiver Brandon Coleman. The release was due to a failed physical
designation, and Coleman had been on the team’s Physically Unable
to Perform list (PUP) all summer.

Coleman came to the Saints as
an undrafted free agent from Rutgers in 2014. After missing his
rookie season with injury, he had been a part of the New Orleans
receiving rotation in each of the last three seasons, playing in
all 48 regular season games with 14 starts. Coleman was one of the
better blocking wideouts in the league, but his receiving numbers
had declined with each year, although he led the team in yards per
reception a year ago. Coleman has 79 career catches for 1,099 yards
and 8 scores, but was never able to use his superior height (6’6)
for any distinct advantage against defensive backs. He was
re-signed to a 1-yr. deal by the Saints this offseason, but faced
an uphill climb to make the team. In addition to superstar wideout
Michael
Thomas
and veteran Ted
Ginn Jr.
, New Orleans added Cameron
Meredith
in free agency and Tre’quan Smith with a 3rd
round draft pick along with the recent signings of veterans Brandon
Tate
and Michael
Floyd
.

Multiple sources also reported
on Sunday that the Saints would re-signed veteran tight end John
Phillips
to bolster depth at the position. The 31-yr. old
Phillips has been on and off the Saints roster since being signed
as a free agent in mid-2016, when he had five receptions for 32
yards.

offensive lineman John
Fullington
with an injury designation, according to ESPN
NFL insider Mike Triplett. Fullington had seen reps with the number
one unit at guard, while Andrus
Peat
recovers from a leg injury, and was in the mix for a
reserve spot on the line.
