New Orleans Saints: CB Trumaine McBride Signed, Joins Deep Group

Everyone knew that this free agency period would be one of the most frenzied signing periods in NFL history. After all the lockout wiped away the traditional free agency period, and essentially crammed it into a two week period.

There is certainly no rest for the weary as the Saints continue to expand their roster with free agents signings. Most of their own free agents have been retained, and they continue to address depth across multiple positions.

Offensive tackles Alex Barron and George Foster were both signed earlier today. The most recent signing happened just a few hours ago when they were able to come to terms with Cardinals cornerback Trumaine McBride.

McBride now makes eight corners the Saints currently have on their roster — Jabari Greer, Tracy Porter, Patrick Robinson, Johnny Patrick, Leigh Torrence, Fabian Washington, and Mark Parson — making his chances to see the final roster slim.

McBride entered the league as a seventh round draft pick of the Chicago Bears in 2007, where he saw the most significant playing time of his career starting in nine games making 41 tackles, five pass deflections, and one forced fumble.

In 2010 McBride was with the Arizona Cardinals where he played primarily in a backup role. He recorded 16 total tackles and one pass deflection.
