The Saints surprised the football-following world not long ago by abruptly cutting defensive end Bobby McCray.
The Saints have done it again; McCray has re-signed with the team, per a league source.
According to the source, the deal has a base salary of $1.5 million, with another $1 million available in incentives.
The move tends to confirm the notion that the Saints made the move in late June because McCray was due to receive a roster bonus of $1.25 million in early July, along with a $2 million base salary.
The team took a risk that McCray would sign elsewhere. And, just like it did with safety Darren Sharper, everything worked out for the defending champs.
