One of the New Orleans Saints highest priority UFA prospects, Jermon Bushrod’s agent confirmed that he and the Saints have come to a 2-year agreement.

This signing works well for both parties, as Bushrod may remain a Saint for two years and go back on the market in 2013, possibly for an upgraded contract if he performs well. But the Saints get insurance for the next two years that their offensive line will have depth and experience, an essential element to quarterback Drew Brees’ success.

Bushrod’s latest tweet says all fans need to know about his feelings on the agreement:

“Happy to be a SAINT for the next 2 years!!!! #whodat”

Bushrod, defending Drew Brees’ blind side, will be either heavily praised or heavily criticized this season, as his position is the most crucial element to the O-line as a whole.

He is in a tremendous position to prove himself as a big-time player in this league and the Saints are both lucky and thrilled to have him back.
