Saints News, 10/20/15: Saints Sign Center/Guard Ryan Seymour

New, comments

From Mike Triplett at ESPN.com: Seymour, 25, started three games at center for the Cleveland Browns last year as an injury replacement. He played in a total of 11 games for the Browns. But he was released this summer, shortly after he was hit with a four-game suspension for violating the NFL’s policy against performance-enhancing substances. Seymour said he didn’t knowingly take anything illegal. The Saints brought in a total of five players for workouts Tuesday -- all at positions that are depleted by injuries. They also worked out defensive backs Akeem Davis and Robert McClain, wide receiver T.J. Graham and guard David Arkin.
