Saints' Michael Thomas: Bulks up in first full offseason
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thomas reported for OTAs at 220 pounds, up from last year's playing weight of 210, John DeShazier of the Saints' official site reports.

Players often add significant muscle mass during their first full offseason in an NFL strength program, and it seems the 6-foot-3 Thomas has filled out his frame to what's essentially the ideal size for a wide receiver. Coming off one of the most productive campaigns by a rookie pass catcher in league history, Thomas is locked in as the top option in a prolific aerial attack that downgraded from Brandin Cooks to Ted Ginn on the opposite side. While the team may try to run more often after adding Adrian Peterson to the backfield, Thomas and Willie Snead shouldn't lack for targets in an offense that's attempted 650 or more passes in each of the last seven seasons. Even if the Saints drop that number closer to 600, as they presumably hope to, Thomas should have a high enough target share to ensure that volume isn't a problem.

Saints' Bryce Harris: Signs with Saints
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Harris signed a contract with the Saints on Monday, Herbie Teope of NOLA.com reports.

Harris attended the Saints' three-day rookie minicamp on a tryout basis and showed enough potential to land a contract. He'll look to secure a depth role, likely at tackle, ahead of the season opener.

Saints' Justin Thomas: Lands in New Orleans
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thomas signed a contract with the Saints on Monday, NOLA.com's Herbie Teope reports.

Thomas, an undrafted quarterback out of Georgia Tech, tried his hand at wide receiver and defensive back at the Saints' rookie minicamp over the weekend and evidently flashed enough potential to earn a spot on the 90-man roster. While it currently isn't clear which side of the ball he'll play on moving forward, any added versatility could only help Thomas' odds of making the team in advance of the regular season.

Saints' Drew Iddings: Signs with New Orleans as offensive guard
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Iddings signed a contract with the Saints on Monday, NOLA.com's Herbie Teope reports.

Iddings showed up to the Saints' rookie minicamp as a defensive end last weekend, but the release of OL Collin Buchanan prompted the Saints to experiment with Iddings on the offensive side of the ball. He evidently impressed enough natural talent to earn a contract as an offensive guard.

Saints' Clay Harbor: Inks deal with New Orleans
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Harbor signed a contract with the Saints on Monday, NOLA.com's Josh Katzenstein reports.

Despite being 30 years old, Harbor participated in the Saints' rookie minicamp over the weekend and flashed enough to land a contract. However, he enters a crowded tight end corps and will need to earn himself a roster spot ahead of the regular season opener.
