Saints reach deal with LB Khairi Fortt

With still more than two months until training camp, the Saints have wrapped up contracts with all six of their draft picks.

The club has reached a four-year agreement with inside linebacker Khairi Fortt, a fourth-round selection from California, the team said Monday.

The 6-foot-2, 240-pound Fortt notched 64 tackles (3.5 for loss) for Cal in 2013. He played for Penn State from 2010 through 2011, recording 50 stops for the Nittany Lions.

The Saints’ starting inside linebackers from 2013 (Curtis Lofton, David Hawthorne) return for 2014, which could leave Fortt to vie for a backup role in the club’s 3-4 scheme in his first NFL season.

The Bears, like the Saints, have contracts done with all of their draft selections.
