METAIRIE, La. ― Timing, the old cliché goes, is everything.

And for DeShawn Wynn, the Saints’ timing couldn’t have been any better.

Hours away from accepting a job in the UFL, Wynn instead said yes to an offer from the defending Super Bowl champions who were in position to sign another running back after placing P.J. Hill on the injured reserve list with a torn triceps.

Monday morning’s physical at New Orleans’ Metairie headquarters, in fact, was the first face-to-face contact between the two parties.

“I hadn’t done anything,” Wynn said. “Basically, it was a surprise to me. I was actually talking to a UFL team and the guy was talking me into coming out, saying all the benefits of how I can play football and be in football condition.

“I was about to call him back probably two hours before the Saints called and that’s what happened.”

The move keeps four running backs on the Saints’ roster after losing Hill and Lynell Hamilton to season-ending injuries.
