As the Saints try to improve a defense that has struggled significantly over the last two years, they’ve added a long-time defensive specialist who had been out of the NFL for a year.

Per a source with knowledge of the situation, the Saints have hired Peter Giunta to serve as senior defensive assistant.

Giunta served as defensive backs coach of the Giants from 2006 through 2014. He was fired by former head coach Tom Coughlin last January.

Previously, Giunta worked as defensive backs coach for the Chiefs from 2001 through 2005. Before that, he served as defensive coordinator of the Rams.

Giunta, 59, also has coached with the Jets and Eagles. He spent 10 years at the college level.

    Between having this guy as an assistant coach or Darin Gantt as my hometown’s beat writer, I’ll take this guy 100X over Gantt.

    Multiple rings with a second day tier secondary with the GMEN. Great pickup for NO.

    Let Joe Vitt sing the National Anthem before each game. New title, he still is part of the organization. Win/win.
