Saints are allergic to LSU players though

Good character, we're in need of a veteran receiver. He's a veteran. Might not cost too much. Perhaps we save a draft pick on a receiver. Pick him up??

I'd love to see the Saints pick him up.

He puts on a camp for underprivileged kids here in Houston every summer, that stays under the radar. It does not get any news coverage because that's how he wants it. one of my coworkers grew up with Brandon and helps out with the camp every summer. He brings in a slew of current NFL players to help out, they volunteer and do not get paid a single dollar. Brandon is a legit great guy

He already has caught a touchdown in a nation championship and a superbowl. He caught the first touchdown in the superbowl last year iirc.
