Sources: Saints working out several veteran receivers Wednesday _lowres


The New Orleans Saints are working out a group of veteran wide receivers on Wednesday, according to multiple sources and ESPN.

Multiple sources told The Advocate that former Giants star Hakeem Nicks, former Chargers receiver Vincent Brown and former Broncos and Colts receiver Nathan Palmer are working out for the Saints.

ESPN has also reported that New Orleans is taking a look at former Raiders receiver Denarius Moore.

Nicks, who is trying to revive a career derailed at one time by injuries, tried out for the Saints last September before finishing the season in New York, where he caught seven passes in six games.

Brown, who sandwiched three years in San Diego around a season in Oakland, has caught 73 career passes, and Palmer has bounced around the NFL, playing on the practice squads of six teams over a 4-year span in addition to active duty in Indianapolis and Denver.
