Veteran wide receiver Rishard Matthews has been signed by the Saints after trying out during minicamp this week.

The team waived former LSU wide receiver Travin Dural to add Matthews to the 90-man roster.

Matthews managed just five catches last season after leaving the Titans and joining the Jets while also dealing with a hamstring issue.

With three NFL teams, the 29-year old Matthews has 230 career catches for 3,160 yards and 21 touchdowns.
