After dumping salaries and familiar faces leave town, the defending Super Bowl champion Saints have signed a significant free agent. (Apologies to Zak Keasey.)
Defensive end Alex Brown agreed to terms on a two-year contract, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter. Signing aging linemen rarely works out well, but Brown’s solid reputation remained intact last year in Chicago.
He will help the Saints defend the run at a clear trouble position on the team. We still expect them to draft a defensive end early, but Brown makes the need less desperate.
