The 5-foot-10, 225-pound West is set to join the group with five years of NFL experience. He entered the league in 2014 out of Towson as a third-round pick with the Cleveland Browns before being traded to the Tennessee Titans in 2015. West then joined the Baltimore Ravens in 2015 and spent three seasons with the club.
On his career, West has 1,816 yards rushing and 11 touchdowns on 465 attempts, averaging 3.9 yards per carry. He also has 344 yards receiving and two touchdowns on 51 career catches. West's best season came in 2016 when he led the Ravens with a career-high 774 yards rushing.
Meanwhile, West wasn't the only veteran free-agent running back to work out for the Saints on Wednesday.
