Source: Saints have signed tight end John Phillips to a one-year deal.
The Saints are bringing back another one of their own free agents. A source confirmed to FOX 8 sports that the team has signed tight end John Phillips.
Phillips joined the Saints midway through the 2016 season when Josh Hill went down for the season. Used mostly as a blocker, Phillips finished with five receptions for 32 yards in eight games with the Saints last year.
Nick Underhill of the Advocate first reported the signing.
