While Marques Colston returned from the physically unable to perform list, the Saints signed six-year NFL veteran Steve Breaston and re-signed rookie free agent Brent Leonard.
Colston missed the first 10 days of training camp with a foot injury. He said that Monday’s practice had been a target date for a return to the field.
“It’s about time I started camp,” said Colston, whose 58 career touchdowns are a franchise record. “These guys have been out here working for [10 days]. They’re really in football shape.”
Breaston, who was signed after a workout with New Orleans earlier Monday, has 255 career receptions with Arizona and Kansas City. He was released by the Chiefs in February.
“I’m grateful they gave me the opportunity,” Breaston said. “I’ve just got to go out here, learn the playbook and keep working hard.”
