(WVUE) -

The Saints are among a host of NFL teams scheduling a private workout with Heisman Trophy winner Baker Mayfield. That's according to a story by Sports Illustrated. 

The workout with Mayfield would take place in Norman, Oklahoma, after the Sooners pro day next Wednesday.

FOX 8 Sports reported last week the Saints conducted a formal interview with the former Oklahoma quarterback at the NFL combine.

Drew Brees is currently out of contract with the Black and Gold. Brees needs to sign a new deal before free agency begins next Wednesday.
