Are The Saints Close To Signing Theo Riddick?
How close are the New Orleans Saints to signing free agent running back Theo Riddick?
Well, one report says that Riddick has narrowed his choice between two teams; the Saints and the Denver Broncos.
The 28-year old Riddick was released by the Lions last week, after a 6-year stint in Detroit.
The 5-foot-9, 200-pound Riddick has been one of the top receiving backs since 2013. His 285 receptions rank him third in the NFL among running backs over that span, while his 2,238 receiving yards rank him fourth.
A native of Somerville, New Jersey, Riddick has also accumulated 1,023 career rushing yards, to go along with five touchdowns.
Last season, Riddick caught 61 passes for 384 yards, while rushing 40 times for 171 yards.
