The former undrafted free agent from Fresno State played in 16 games with two starts for the Black and Gold in 2014.
Initially signing with the Atlanta Falcons in 2012, he has played the last three seasons with the Saints, appearing in 34 games with four starts.
New Orleans will preserve some depth on the offensive line after agreeing to terms with Bryce Harris. Pro Football Focus gave him an overall grade of -17.5, which was good for dead last among linemen on the team.
In just 393 snaps as a backup, Harris allowed seven quarterback (most) hits and 19 hurries (more than Jonathan Goodwin and Terron Armstead). He’s the only Saints restricted free agent that was re-signed this year. You would think a Tyrunn Walker would have been the more appropriate option to bring back.
