Saints sign Kingsport's Foreman

Former Dobyns-Bennett star Malik Foreman signed with the New Orleans Saints on Friday, multiple outlets are reporting.

The Saints have been hit hard by injury at cornerback during preseason camp and hosted a number of players Friday for a workout.

Foreman, who played at Tennessee, had originally agreed to a free-agent deal with the Houston Texans following last spring’s NFL draft. A neck injury, however, prevented medical clearance and scrapped those plans.

At Tennessee, Foreman made three interceptions, broke up 14 passes and recorded 71 tackles, including 7½ for loss. The speedster made waves with a 4.37 40-yard dash at UT's Pro Day, the fastest among all the former Vols.
