Kenny Stills is heading back to New Orleans. The veteran wideout is signing with the Saints practice squad, reports NFL Network’s Mike Garafolo (via Twitter). Stills worked out for the team earlier today, and Garafolo notes that the receiver could be a “possible add to their active roster soon.”
The 2013 fifth-round pick spent the first two seasons of his career in New Orleans, including a 2014 campaign where he finished with 929 yards from scrimmage (a mark that still stands as a career high). Stills was traded to the Dolphins in 2015 and proceeded to spend four seasons in Miami, finishing with more than 640 receiving yards per season.
The 29-year-old spent that past two seasons with the Texans. After collecting 561 receiving yards in 2019, the veteran finished 2020 with only 144 yards in 10 games.
Stills joins a crowded receivers depth chart. Marquez Callaway, Deonte Harris, Ty Montgomery, Lil’Jordan Humphrey, and Chris Hogan are on the active roster, and Michael Thomas will take a spot once he returns from injury. The team also has Kevin White, Easop Winston, and rookie Kawaan Baker on their practice squad.
