Free agent receiver Jerome Pathon, who played just four games last season because of injury, agreed to contract terms with the New Orleans Saints on Wednesday. ``We've targeted Jerome from the start of free agency,'' Saints general manager Randy Mueller said. ``We believe he is an ascending player in the league and has a bright future with the Saints.'' Terms of the deal were not disclosed. Pathon had his most productive year as a rookie in 1998, starting 15 games and catching 50 passes for 511 yards. In four seasons with the Indianapolis Colts, Pathon had 138 receptions for 1,650 yards. Pathon injured his foot in the third game last season and played in just one other game. He finished the season with 24 receptions for 330 yards.
