With TE David Thomas still out with a concussion, the New Orleans Saints tried out two tight ends with one of them being a familiar with the team already.
The Saints tried out tight ends Tory Humphrey and Derek Schouman in a move that shows TE David Thomas has a concussion that could end up being more serious than any of us thought.
Humphrey has been with the Saints the past two seasons and battled TE Tyler Lorenzen for a spot on the roster this season. Both were released after preseason when the rosters were made final.
Humphrey doesn’t have that much of a spectacular career stats with 13 catches for 181 yards. However, Humphrey was decent when he was with the Saints the past two years.
Schouman was a seventh round draft pick for the Buffalo Bills in 2007 and has most recently been on the roster for the St. Louis Rams before being released.
Schouman’s stats are a bit higher than Humphrey’s with him having 27 catches for 275 yards and one touchdown. Humphrey though has a small edge with his previous years with the Saints and familiarity with the offensive scheme.
