NFL Network insider Ian Rapoport posted to X on April 12 that St. Brown had agreed to terms with the New Orleans Saints.

The Saints have a few young options in Rashid Shaheed and A.T. Perry playing alongside Chris Olave. However, St. Brown could be a nice veteran addition with years of NFL experience.

He may not have the career of his younger brother, but St. Brown has continued to stay around the league as a late-round draft pick.

St. Brown was a 3-star recruit coming out of high school in California. His offers included programs like LSU, Miami, and Penn State, but he ultimately decided to attend Notre Dame.

Playing under Brian Kelly, St. Brown spent three years in South Bend with the Fighting Irish. His peak came as a sophomore in 2016, catching passes from the talented DeShone Kizer. He finished his college career with 92 receptions for 1,484 yards, and 13 touchdowns in 26 games played.

The Packers selected St. Brown in the sixth round of the 2018 NFL Draft. He showed flashes during his rookie season, but a season-ending ankle injury forced him miss his entire second year in the NFL.

St. Brown spent the following two years in a reserve role for the Packers before signing a one-year deal with the Chicago Bears in 2022. He started a career-high 16 games that season, earning another one-year deal for 2023.

Meanwhile, St. Brown’s younger brother, Amon-Ra St. Brown, continues to take the league by storm. The former fourth-round pick was a first-team All-Pro in 2023, catching 199 passes for 1,515 yards and 10 touchdowns.

Now, the older St. Brown will have a chance to serve in a veteran role in a relatively thin wide receiver room for the Saints in 2024. If he can do enough in training camp, he may even be able to secure some playing time.
