Antonio Brown, the All-Pro free agent wide receiver, maybe getting a third chance to play in the NFL before the 2019 season is over. According to multiple reports, Brown will be working out with the New Orleans Saints, Friday morning, inside their practice facility in Metairie, LA.
Brown, 31, posted a picture of him signing a waiver to participate in the Saints’ workout, but since been deleted.
The possibility of Brown joining an explosive offensive headlined by Drew Brees, Alvin Kamara and Michael Thomas, the league’s leading receiver in reception yards, the Saints will be a clear cut favorite to represent the NFC in Miami come February.
However, if signed, the seven-time pro-bowler may still miss the remainder of the season due to additional disciplinary actions following the NFL’s investigation of Brown’s sexual assault case.

At the moment, there has been no indication on whether the Saints have any interest in signing the receiver, but New Orleans is in search to add another wideout heading into the playoffs.
In addition to Brown, the Saints have also brought in free agent Maurice Harris, who was recently cut by the New England Patriots prior to the start of the season.
Its been a rollercoaster of a year for Brown following his departure from the Pittsburgh Steelers this offseason. He appeared in one game for the Patriots where he recorded 56 yards and one touchdown after the Oakland Raiders released the disgruntled star in September.
