Report: Saints Sign Wide Receivers Michael Floyd, Brandon Tate

The Saints have reportedly added Michael Floyd and Brandon Tate.

Floyd was selected in the first round of the 2012 draft by the Cardinals and stayed with Arizona until he was released in 2016 following a DUI arrest.

Floyd had 10 catches for 78 yards in 11 games for Minnesota last year. 

The Saints also signed receiver/kick returner Brandon Tate, reports ESPN. Tate had spent the last two seasons with the Bills, and he had also played for the Patriots and Bengals.

Interested in a few more innings down at The Sandlot?

Twentieth Century Fox is in the early stages of developing a prequel to the 1993 coming-of-age comedy about a ragtag team of baseball-obsessed kids, Entertainment Weekly has confirmed.

David Mickey Evans, the director and co-writer of the original Sandlot, is attached to pen the new script with newcomer Austin Reynolds. Plot details have yet to emerge, but according to Deadline Hollywood, which first reported the news, the story could involve the legend of the Beast, the massive English mastiff known for hoarding stray baseballs and haunting kids’ dreams.

Though The Sandlot wasn’t a critical or commercial hit upon release, it became something of a cult favorite over the years and spawned two straight-to-video sequels, in 2005 and 2007. The movie also marked its 25th anniversary in April with some new merchandise and a brief return to theaters.
