WHITE SULPHUR SPRINGS, W. Va. — The New Orleans Saints have signed defensive tackle Austin Brown, a Miami of Ohio product who spent time with the Houston Texans last season in training camp.

Brown, who’s listed as a 6-foot-2, 295-pound nose tackle, signed Sunday night after a late afternoon workout, so he may not be the player that was spotted wearing No. 46 — formerly long snapper Chris Highland's number — at the afternoon walk-through.
