Saints Adding A Receiver To Roster
The New Orleans Saints are adding some wide receiver help to their roster for the final two games of the 2016 season.
Greg Barnett, the agent for Corey Fuller, who was on the Detroit Lions practice squad, says his client will signed to the Saints' active roster.
After playing his college football at Virginia Tech, Fuller was selected by the Detroit Lions in sixth-round of the 2013 NFL Draft.
The 6-foot-2, 200-pound Fuller spent the entire 2013 season on the Lions' practice squad, before catching 14 passes for 212 yards and his only career touchdown, which came against the Saints, in 2014.
A native of Baltimore, Maryland, Fuller compiled 4 catches for 76 yards in 2015.
After offseason foot surgery in June, Fuller was put on the PUP list to begin the 2016 campaign.
He was activated was November 8, before being released by the Lions on November 22, and then signed to their practice squad one day later.
A former track star at Kansas, prior to his transfer to Virginia Tech, Fuller has totaled 18 catches for 288 yards and one touchdown during his NFL career.
Fuller, the brother of Chicago Bears cornerback Kyle Fuller and Washington Redskins cornerback Kendall Fuller, is also expected to provide help to the Saints on special teams.
