Saints Audition Three Tight Ends
The New Orleans Saints are apparently looking for depth at the tight end position.
The team worked out three tight ends on Tuesday.
Ian Bunting, Donald Parham, and Eric Tomlinson all auditioned for the Saints.
The 6-foot-7, 255-pound Bunting, who played his college football at Michigan, before spending his final year as a graduate transfer at California, where he caught 18 passes for 195 yards, spent the preseason with the Chicago Bears, prior to being released.
The 6-foot-8, 237-pound Parham, who played his college football at Stetson, where he compiled 85 receptions for 1,319 yards and 13 touchdowns as a senior, spent part of the preseason with the Detroit Lions, before being signed to the practice squad of the Washington Redskins, prior to being released on September 17.
The 6-foot-6, 253-pound Tomlison is the only one of the trio with any NFL regular-season game experience, totaling 16 catches for 193 yards and one touchdown for the New York Jets between 2014-2016.
The 27-year old Tomlison appeared in three games for the New York Giants this season, prior to being released on September 24.
