New Orleans Saints Work Out More Tight Ends; TE David Thomas To IR?


The New Orleans Saints have worked out two more tight ends in a move that brings much speculation as to the future of the season to injured TE David Thomas.

According to Scout.com, the New Orleans Saints have worked out TE Richard Quinn and TE Ben Patrick as of yesterday.  About a week prior, the Saints also worked out tight ends Tory Humphrey and Derek Schouman.

Quinn was a second round selection for the Denver Broncos in 2009 and was waive-injured in August 2011.  Patrick was a seventh round selection for the Arizona Cardinals in 2007 and was currently with the NY Giants.

Quinn has 1 career reception for 9 yards.  Patrick has 45 career receptions for 446 yards and 1 touchdown.  In August, Patrick retired and in September came back to the NFL.

Though it’s specualtion, I think TE David Thomas has a concussion that might land him on injured reserve much like what happened to former Saints CB Randall Gay last year.  Thomas received the concussion in the September 25 game against the Houston Texans and hasn’t practiced since. 

If the Saints do sign one of these tight ends, Thomas would have to go to injured reserve or someone will have to be released from the roster to make room.  We’ll know more as the week goes on and see what move the Saints make.
