Saints Work Out Two Offensive Lineman, Damion McIntosh and Wesley Britt


New Orleans has confirmed they worked out two offensive lineman today in an effort to increase their depth at the position, Damion McIntosh a former Chief and Wesley Britt a former Patriot.

Damion McIntosh has spent  time with the Miami Dolphins, San Diego Chargers and most recently started 31 games for the Chiefs over the past two seasons.

McIntosh, 31, is garnering interest from several clubs and recently worked out for the Seahawks , the level of interest the Saints have in him is unclear but certainly McIntosh is no more than hopeful fill in.

He doesn’t carry a very stellar resume as the last two seasons spent with the Chiefs he gave up nearly 15 sacks, the Saints might want to re-think this one as apparently even the Chiefs couldn’t use him.

Wesley Britt, a behemoth at 6’8 320, was a fifth round draft choice of the Chargers in 2005. Britt’s stay in the bay areas was quite limited as he was cut before the season started but did manage to find a home with the Patriots shortly there after.

Britt has spent the last four seasons with the Pats seeing limited action as a backup tackle/tight end and special teams contributor but may have more appeal to the Saints as he can fill in at tight end as well.

The Saints have been dinged up at tight end for some time and currently only list three active tight ends on the roster after placing veterans Billy Miller and Dan Campbell on IR and releasing Buck Ortega to free up a roster spot for kick return whiz Courtney Roby.

Essentially the Saints could kill two birds with one stone by singing Britt and simultaneously bolster both the o line and tight end position.

At this point though  it doesn’t appear the  team is interested in signing either one before the Saints next game against the Philadelphia Eagles.
