The Saints are adding yet another veteran tight end for depth.

According to The New Orleans Advocate, the Saints have struck a one-year deal with Travis Beckum, who was with the Seahawks earlier in the offseason.

The 27-year-old Beckum last played in an NFL regular season game in 2012 with the Giants. In 48 career games, he has hauled in 26 passes for 264 yards and three touchdowns.

Beckum’s signing comes two days after the club placed reserve tight end Richard Quinn on the reserve/retired list. The Saints signed Quinn last week.
