NEW ORLEANS, LA (WVUE) -

Free agent tight end Coby Fleener has signed with the New Orleans Saints, the team announced Wednesday evening. According to a report, the deal is for five years and $36 million.

Fleener, who was a second round pick by the Colts in 2012 out of Stanford, will help fill the hole left open by the departing Ben Watson, who signed with the Baltimore Ravens. 

The 6-foot-6, 251-pound Fleener comes to New Orleans with 183 receptions, 2,154 yards and 17 receptions in 60 career games.
