The New Orleans Saints have found some help at wide receiver, signing free agent Brandon Marshall, per ESPN's Adam Schefter.

The New Orleans Saints are moving quickly to fill the spot previously held by Dez Bryant, who suffered a torn Achilles tendon on the final play of Friday's practice last week. He's someone, again, that he's been in a number of systems and overall had a good workout. "He's another big target". And Marshall was among of trio of receivers, which included Bryant, brought in for a workout.

Both receivers auditioned for the Saints this past Tuesday.

Kedarnath is a love story set in the backdrop of the unprecedented flash floods that ruined the Kedarnath valley in June 2013. When asked about the controversy, Ronnie told reporters, "First, I want to clarify, till date no one has approached us".

This will be Marshall's fourth team in two years and the seventh of his 13-year career after he was released by the Seattle Seahawks on October 30 and by the New York Giants in April.

Marshall gives the Saints some experience in a wide receivers room whose elder statesman is Michael Thomas, a third-year player. Marshall has that in spades, with 83 career touchdowns scored.

Marshall, a six-time Pro Bowler, has never played in a playoff game. But his production has dropped off drastically the past two years. The timing of the injury also means that he could make it back to football just in time for next year's training camp portion of the NFL calendar, but whether he'll make his return with the Saints is something that remains to be seen.
