Former Saints TE Benjamin Watson Meeting With Patriots

New Orleans Saints tight end Benjamin Watson catches a 13-yard pass from quarterback Drew Brees for a TD against the Los Angeles Rams at the Mercedes Benz Superdome in New Orleans La. Sunday Nov. 4 2018

Watson suspended his retirement from the National Football League to return for one more run at a Super Bowl.

According to a new report from ESPN's Adam Schefter, Watson is now mulling his options in a potential return for an 11th National Football League season. It will be a one-year deal worth $3 million, per ESPN.

Freddie Starr found dead in Spain aged 76
Freddie Starr's carer has detailed the comedian's final moments before his untimely death, as the cause remains unknown. Police investigated an allegation of historical sexual abuse against Starr in 2012, which he said left him "suicidal".


Watson, 38, started his career in New England as their first-round pick in the 2004 draft.

The New England Patriots have made another offseason move. He had been diagnosed with appendicitis, which led to him missing the Saints' crushing loss in the NFC Championship Game. He then came to New Orleans for three seasons, left to play for the Baltimore Ravens in 2016-17 and then returned to the Saints for one year.

Kim Kardashian's surrogate in labour
Not only have we had a royal baby debut , now it has been confirmed that Kim Kardashian and Kanye West will be parents-of-four any minute now.


Watson's addition to the Patriots' tight end corps is significant for a number of reasons.

Watson is also both incredibly experienced and presumably familiar already with the Patriots' offense to some extent. The Chiefs could certainly use some depth at the tight end position, because things are looking pretty bleak for that group apart from starting TE Travis Kelce.

Pavelski leads Sharks past Avalanche 3-2 in Game 7
Karlsson and Burns have played just four minutes together on the power play in this series with the Sharks scoring two goals. Nathan MacKinnon leads Colorado with six goals, Mikko Rantanen has eight assists and Gabriel Landeskog has 38 shots on goal.


Watson immediately becomes the team's most experienced tight end, followed by Austin Seferian-Jenkins, Matt LaCosse, Stephen Anderson, Ryan Izzo and Andrew Beck.
