New Orleans Saints reportedly work out Hakeem Nicks

The New Orleans Saints continue to feel around for receiving help.

The team on Tuesday hosted free-agent pass-catcher Hakeem Nicks for a workout, according to Nick Underhill of The New Orleans Advocate.

Nicks was released by the Titans on Saturday, leaving the 27-year-old looking for work after six seasons in the NFL with the Giants and Colts.

Nicks has seen his speed dry up after a laundry list of foot and lower-body injuries. The former Big Blue star looked healthier down the stretch with the Colts last season, but the Saints can't view him as more than a depth addition. Still, the Saints have just four wideouts on their roster in Marques Colston, Brandin Cooks, Willie Snead and Brandon Coleman.

If the Saints pass, we wouldn't be stunned to see Tennessee -- another team with just four receivers -- bring Nicks back in the days ahead.
