The fourth-round pick by the Jets in 2018 out of Miami had a promising start to his pro career with over 500 yards receiving as a rookie but New York evenetually dealt him to Minnesota where he played last season. Herndon managed just four catches for 40 yards in 16 games for the Vikings.
The Saints are looking for more production from starting tight end Adam Trautman and others behind him on the depth chart. Herndon will battle for a roster spot.
