The Saints released Brown (calf) with an injury settlement Thursday, removing him from injured reserve, the New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.
Brown joined the Saints in May, adding a veteran presence to a receiving corps lacking in experience. However, he failed his pre-training camp physical due to a strained calf, which will bring his brief tenure in New Orleans to a close. The severity of the injury will likely determine when he receives a chance with another organization.

The Saints took a flier on Brown in an effort to deepen their wide out corps in May, presumably to add a veteran presence in the aftermath of Marques Colston's release. Being how Brandin Cooks, Brandon Coleman, Willie Snead and Michael Thomas combine for three years of NFL experience, Brown, a five-year NFL veteran, has more experience than the top-four wide receivers currently atop the Saints' depth chart. Should Brown make the final 53-man roster out of camp, he will remain unlikely to achieve fantasy relevance in 2016.
