The New Orleans Saints signed veteran wide receiver Brandon Marshall, coach Sean Payton announced Monday.
Veteran WR Brandon Marshall is signing a one-year deal with the New Orleans Saints, per source. In his 13-year NFL career, Marshall never has played in a playoff game; his chance now awaits.

Marshall, who previously spent time with the Seattle Seahawks, joins his seventh team on his 13-year career, a span where he totaled 970 catches for 12,351 yards and 83 touchdowns.
In seven games with the Seahawks this season, the 34-year-old Marshall produced 11 catches for 136 yards and a touchdown before his release in October.
The Saints signaled last week their desire for a veteran wide receiver opposite of Michael Thomas, who leads the team in receiving. And Marshall was among of trio of receivers, which included Bryant, brought in for a workout.
Bryant was expected to fill the void of a dependable No. 2 receiver before going down with the season-ending injury a day after signing a one-year deal.
