During his first six seasons in the NFL, Benjamin Watson was a regular in the post-season while playing for the New England Patriots. But after spending the past three years playing for the beleaguered Cleveland Browns, Watson longed for the day when he could suit up for a playoff contender again.

That day came on Monday when Watson, an unrestricted free agent tight end, signed a three-year contract to join the New Orleans Saints as the primary backup to star tight end Jimmy Graham.

"It's definitely an honor to play for an organization like the Saints," Watson said. "It's obviously an organization I have admired from afar. It's a great opportunity for me. I always wanted to be a part of a team like the Saints that's in the hunt and continues to be in the hunt. So I'm happy that they reached out to me and expressed to me that they wanted me to come."
