Saints Sign TE Coby Fleener

The New Orleans Saints lost TE Ben Watson earlier Wednesday, but have already found his replacement. TE Coby Fleener is leaving the Indianapolis Colts to join the Saints. 

Fleener will provide QB Drew Brees with a big TE target and Fleener now the long-term replacement for Jimmy Graham. The Saints have limited cap space, and this might be the team's only major addition. 

Fleener caught a career-high 54 passes for 491 yards and 3 TDs last season. He played in all 16 games, but did split time with Dwayne Allen.

The Colts gave Allen a four-year $29.4 million deal before free agency started. That's a higher per year figure than Fleener received, despite Fleener being more productive and healthy.
