Less than a year after scoring three touchdowns in his debut as a member of the Patriots Leonard Fournette Jersey Black , running back Mike Gillislee is a free agent. And Saints running back Mark Ingram is suspended. And that could be enough to get Gillislee his next gig.
Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that Gillislee is visiting the Saints on Sunday, one day after not making it to the 53-man roster in New England.
The Patriots signed Gillislee as a restricted free agent in 2017, making an offer that the Bills didn’t match. For whatever reason, Gillislee fell out of favor after that three-score first effort.
But with Ingram gone for four games and with the Saints needing to not overwork Alvin Kamara while Ingram is gone Authentic David Desharnais Jersey , Gillislee could help.
Because he has four accrued seasons, signing Gillislee before Week One means essentially guaranteeing his full-season salary. So it will be interesting to see what the Saints will pay to a guy who may end up being a short-term stop-gap through the first month of the season.
The Philadelphia Eagles have agreed on a one-year contract with wide receiver Mike Wallace.
The 31-year-old Wallace spent the past two seasons in Baltimore and had 52 catches for 748 yards and four touchdowns last year. The deal announced Thursday is reportedly worth up to $4 million.
