Saints News, 4/11/14: Draft Prospect Tight End Calls Visit With Saints 'A Success'

Ron Chenoy-USA TODAY Sports

Central Arkansas’ Chase Dixon, a 6-foot-4, 238-pound tight end who was reportedly on pace to be a small-school All-American in 2013, declared on Thursday that a visit with the Saints was “a success,” suggesting New Orleans might be interested in grabbing him either late in the upcoming draft or in free agency if he’s not chosen. Before his flight to New Orleans, Dixon played 32 games for Central Arkansas from 2010 to 2013, catching 33 passes for 379 yards and 10 touchdowns for his career.
