The New Orleans Saints agreed to terms with quarterback Kellen Mond and wide receiver Equanimeous St. Brown.

The team announced the deals with the free agents Friday without any details of their length or financial value.

On the quarterback side, the Saints had been on the lookout for a backup this offseason after the departure of Jameis Winston to the Cleveland Browns as a free agent.

They previously signed journeyman Nathan Peterman and also have Jake Haener, a 2023 fourth-round pick, on board as a prospective understudy to Derek Carr.

The Minnesota Vikings selected Mond in the third round of the 2021 NFL Draft.

He spent his first season with the Vikings, was with the Cleveland Browns briefly in 2022 and spent much of 2023 on the Indianapolis Colts’ practice squad. He has appeared in one regular-season game, completing two passes for 5 yards at Green Bay in Week 17 of 2021.

Mond, 24, was a four-year starter at Texas A&M and threw for 9,661 yards, 71 touchdowns and 27 interceptions.

St. Brown, 27, was a sixth-round pick by the Green Bay Packers in 2018 and is the older brother of Detroit Lions star receiver Amon-Ra St. Brown.

Equanimeous St. Brown caught five passes for 62 yards in seven games (two starts) with the Chicago Bears in 2023. He has 63 receptions for 928 yards and two scores in 60 games (28 starts) for the Packers (2018, 2020-21) and the Bears (2022-23).
