Per Mike Florio at Pro Football Talk, the New Orleans Saints have agreed to terms with tight end Ben Watson. The terms of the deal are said to stretch over three years. After spending six years with the New England Patriots, Watson was a key member of the Cleveland Browns’ passing attack from 2010-2012. He missed a mere three games in 2011 (concussion), but managed to haul in 154 passes for 1,674 yards and eight touchdowns. Watson led the team in receiving yards in 2010 (763). Upon his exit of Cleveland, Watson signed several footballs which were to be given to fans. In New Orleans, Watson, 32, will provide a compliment to Pro Bowl tight end Jimmy Graham amidst the passing attack led by Drew Brees. The Browns recently added tight end Gary Barnidge via free agency and are said to be in the market for another, having expressed interest in Fred Davis who recently inked a deal with the Washington Redskins.
