Saints signed TE Ben Watson to a three-year contract.

A do-it-all tight end still going relatively strong at age 32, Watson will replace David Thomas as the Saints' top backup behind Jimmy Graham. In 16 games with the Browns last season, Watson hauled in 49 passes for 501 yards and three touchdowns. His numbers are likely to dip with a reduced role in New Orleans, but this is a smart depth signing by Saints GM Mickey Loomis & Co.

New Orleans Saints Add TE Benjamin Watson and LB Ramon Humber

Saints re-signed LB Ramon Humber to a one-year contract.
An undersized weak-side linebacker type at 5-foot-11 and 232 pounds, Humber won't be a candidate to play on defense in Rob Ryan's new 3-4. He did rack up eight special teams tackles in 2012 and could earn a roster spot there.

Re: Saints Sign Ben Watson!!!!

GREAT pickup, UGA represent!

Having him and Jimmy on the field together- I can't wait. Plus he's built like Mack Truck, so run-blocking hopefully won't be a problem (he's smart too, 48 on the Wonderlic three years ago)

Re: Saints Sign Ben Watson, Re sign Humber

At 32 y/a I hope his salary isn't too much over the vet minimum, but I do like the signing - a replacement for David Thomas.

There's another need taken off the books. Pretty decent move, too. Watson has been a consistent TE over the years.
