Saints News, 5/25/15: Saints Recently Worked out WR Kris Durham

New, comments

From The Advocate: The Saints aren’t done looking at wide receivers. During an appearance on Sirius XM Radio, former fourth-round pick Kris Durham said he recently worked out for New Orleans and the Dallas Cowboys. The 6-foot-6, 216-pound receiver said he felt particularly good about his session with the Cowboys and is hoping for a call. Durham, a product of Georgia, was originally drafted by the Seattle Seahawks. He also spent time with the Detroit Lions and Tennessee Titans.
