Former New England Patriots wide receiver Antonio Brown is reportedly in New Orleans on Friday morning working out for the Saints.
ESPN's Adam Schefter said on Twitter that the Saints are "doing their due diligence" in working out Brown. There is no word on whether they plan to sign him.
Brown posted the waiver he signed with the team on Instagram, with the caption "back to business," via Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network.

Patriots coach Bill Belichick had little to say about the Brown news when asked about it during his Friday media availability.
"Not really," he said when asked if he had any reaction. "Focused on Miami. Doesn't really have anything to do with us."

Brown signed with the Patriots in September after being released by the Oakland Raiders amid a dispute with their general manager. He played in one game for the team and was released 11 days later after allegations surfaced alleging he sexually assaulted two different women. Brown denies both allegations.
The Patriots were Brown's third team in under a year, after leaving the Steelers at the end of last season.
The NFL has acknowledged it is investigating the allegations against Brown, who is an unrestricted free agent. But the league has given no timetable for its investigation.
