The New Orleans Saints aren’t resting on their laurels when it comes to improving the cornerback position.

Despite owning one of the league’s top tandem of corners in Marshon Lattimore and Paulson Adebo, and adding Alontae Taylor and extending Bradley Roby during the offseason, while also having Chauncey Gardner-Johnson as the team’s top slot coverage option, New Orleans elected to add Jordan Brown on Monday, according to Brown’s agent.

Brown was originally a seventh-round draft selection by the Cinncinati Bengals in 2019. He played his college ball at South Dakota State University, where he played in 51 total games and amassed 148 tackles over four seasons.

While there, Brown was named First-team All-Missouri Conference, twice.

In 2019, he was one of Cincinnati’s final cuts. And since then, he’s collected experience playing on the practice squads of Jacksonville, Washington and the Raiders.

Brown has yet to appear in an NFL game. However, he does boast needed versatility. In college, he transferred from the offensive side of the ball to the defensive in 2015.

He has a natural knack for the ball, collecting eight interceptions over his final three college seasons.

Brown also managed to play special teams during his four-year college career. As he attempts to stick on the Saints’ roster, he’ll have to lean on his versatility in training camp battles.
