  • Brandon Coleman: Released by New Orleans

    Coleman (undisclosed) was released by the Saints on Sunday with a failed physical designation, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

    Coleman opened up training camp on the PUP list, and while reports surfaced last week that he was close to 100 percent, it's clear the veteran wide receiver just could never get right. Coleman still can be a quality wide receiver at just 26 years old, so he likely won't have trouble finding a new home once he's medically cleared.

  • Saints' Brandon Coleman: Closing in on 100 percent

    Coleman (undisclosed) is nearing a return to action, Josh Katzenstein of The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.

    Coleman landed on the Physically Unable to Perform list earlier this week but little has been revealed regarding the cause for his absence. Per the report, Coleman was spotted with a helmet in hand at Saturday's practice, which serves as a good sign moving forward. The 26-year-old figures to provide some added depth to the New Orleans receiving corps in 2018.

  • Saints' Brandon Coleman: Settles on PUP list

    The Saints placed Coleman (undisclosed) on the Physically Unable to Perform list Tuesday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

    Since logging a veritable redshirt season in 2014 as an undrafted free agent, Coleman has been active for all 48 regular-season games in the meantime. However, he missed the Saints' divisional-round loss to the Vikings in January due to a neck injury. The exact nature of the current concern is unknown, but Coleman won't be on the practice field when training camp opens Thursday.

  • Saints' Brandon Coleman: Returning to New Orleans

    Coleman agreed Wednesday to re-sign with the Saints, Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network reports.

    Coleman opened the offseason as a restricted free agent but was became unrestricted after the Saints declined to extend him a qualifying offer. However, it turns out that Coleman won't be going anywhere, and he'll rejoin a New Orleans squad that recently added Cameron Meredith (knee) to slot in as the likely No. 3 wideout behind starters Michael Thomas and Ted Ginn. That presumably means Coleman will compete with the likes of Willie Snead and Tommylee Lewis for one of the final roster spots at receiver, though Coleman should have a leg up given his effectiveness as a blocker in the run game.

  • Saints' Brandon Coleman: Non-tendered by New Orleans

    The Saints didn't tender Coleman a contract for the 2018 season Wednesday, making the receiver an unrestricted free agent, Nick Underhill of The Baton Rouge Advocate reports.

    Coleman hits the open market following a 2017 campaign in which he caught only 23 passes despite serving as the Saints' No. 3 wideout for most of the season. The Rutgers product was efficient with his limited opportunities the past three years in New Orleans, producing 8.8 yards per target while scoring on eight of his 79 catches. The Saints are devoting most of their cap space to Drew Brees and the defense during the upcoming season, perhaps setting up an offensive-minded draft in April. Coleman will find an opportunity to compete for a depth receiver job elsewhere, unless he signs with the Saints for less than the original-round restricted free-agent tender.

  • Saints' Brandon Coleman: Restricted free agent this offseason

    Coleman, who did not play in the Saints' 29-24 NFC divisional-round loss to the Vikings due to a neck injury, finished the 2017 regular season with 23 receptions for 364 yards and three touchdowns.

    Coleman appeared in all 16 games for New Orleans and the three touchdowns tied a career high. An excellent run blocker, Coleman saw substantial playing time as the Saints' No. 3 receiver but the Rutgers product was generally an afterthought in the passing game. Coleman is only 24 years old and will be a restricted free agent this offseason. At 6-foot-6, another team could sign him with the hope of turning him into a dangerous red-zone target. However, if Coleman returns to New Orleans next season he will probably need an injury to one of the receivers ahead of him on the depth chart (Michael Thomas and Ted Ginn) in order to make a significant fantasy impact.

  • Saints' Brandon Coleman: Ruled out this week

    Coleman (neck) has been ruled out for Sunday's playoff game against the Vikings.

    With Coleman -- who hauled in four passes for 44 yards in last weekend's wild-card win over the Panthers -- unavailable this week, Willie Snead figures to see added opportunities in the Saints offense Sunday, while working behind Michael Thomas and Ted Ginn.

  • Saints' Brandon Coleman: Nursing neck injury

    Coleman didn't practice Wednesday due to a neck injury, Larry Holder of The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.

    Since posting at least 30 receiving yards in five of the Saints' first nine contests, Coleman compiled a minuscule eight receptions (on 13 targets) for 82 yards the rest of the regular season. Due to the scarce attention paid to him by Drew Brees during that span, Coleman's outing Sunday against the Panthers came as a surprise. Targeted first among Saints skill-position players, Coleman hauled in four of five passes for 44 yards by game's end. There's no guarantee he'll be as involved in Sunday's divisional-round matchup at Minnesota, but first he must ditch his injury in order to have any chance to replicate the previous performance.

  • Saints' Brandon Coleman: Best game in months

    Coleman caught four passes on five targets for 44 yards in Sunday's 31-26 playoff win against the Panthers.

    The Saints' No. 3 receiver was targeted on Drew Brees' first pass of the game and remained involved throughout the victory. In fact, Sunday's contest marked the most yards Coleman has accrued since Week 7 and most catches since Week 2. Coleman has a tendency to disappear in games, which often makes him a risky fantasy choice in many leagues. However, as the playoff field and corresponding fantasy options dwindle, desperate owners could do worse than the 6-foot-6 receiver, despite a difficult test against a tough Vikings secondary next week.

  • Saints' Brandon Coleman: Ready for Bucs game

    Coleman (neck) doesn't have an injury designation for Sunday's game in Tampa Bay, Jenna Laine of ESPN.com reports.

    Coleman was limited at practice all week but should be fine to handle his usual role as the Saints try to clinch their division. He didn't draw any targets last week and hasn't topped three receptions in a contest since Week 2.

  • Saints' Brandon Coleman: Limited in Thursday's practice

    Coleman (neck) was a limited participant in practice Thursday, Herbie Teope of The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.

    The limited session amounts to a step forward for Coleman, who was held out entirely Wednesday. It's generally expected that Coleman will gain clearance to suit up Sunday against the Buccaneers, but he probably won't see much involvement in the passing game with Michael Thomas (hamstring) likely to be available and Ted Ginn having since recovered from a rib injury. When both Thomas and Ginn suited up in the Week 16 win over the Falcons, Coleman wasn't targeted once across 39 offensive snaps.

  • Saints' Brandon Coleman: Held out with neck injury

    Coleman didn't practice Wednesday due to a neck injury, Larry Holder of The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.

    Despite playing more than half the snaps on offense in all but three games this season, Coleman hasn't topped three receptions in a single contest since Week 2. An absence for Week 17 against Tampa Bay would free up more playing time for Willie Snead and Tommylee Lewis.

  • Saints' Brandon Coleman: Fumbles twice

    Coleman caught three passes on five targets for 20 yards but also lost two fumbles in Sunday's win against the Jets.

    Coleman's fumbles came on back-to-back drives in the second half with the Saints deep in New York territory. He did not see another target after his second fumble. The big receiver saw 76 percent of the Saints' offensive snaps (second most among receivers, behind only Michael Thomas) but still failed to produce for fantasy owners, even with Ted Ginn sidelined with a rib injury. Ginn will likely return to the lineup next week against the Falcons, but Coleman will not be a recommended fantasy play regardless.

  • Saints' Brandon Coleman: Two catches Thursday night

    Coleman caught two passes on three targets for 32 yards in Thursday night's loss to the Falcons.

    Coleman got free for a 23-yard catch-and-run on a crossing route but he was quiet otherwise. The big receiver played 32 of 52 offensive snaps (62 percent) for New Orleans but he remains an afterthought in the passing game. He can probably be left on the waiver wire in all but the deepest of leagues.
