Saints re-sign TE Higgins and OG Olsen


After re-signing safety Rafael Bush earlier this week, the New Orleans Saints also announced that tight end Michael Higgins and offensive guard Eric Olsen have re-signed with the team as well.

Higgins joined the Saints as an undrafted free agent in 2011 and has spent the past two seasons mainly on the practice squad.  In the 2011 and 2012 season he was activated towards the end of the seasons and has a career total of 2 receptions for 1 yard.

Olsen joined the Saints at the conclusion of the 2011 season and quickly found himself called into action due to injuries along the offensive line.  He started all 16 games for the Saints in the 2012 season.
