The Saints are going to have at least one change in their starting offensive line in 2016 after releasing longtime staple Jahri Evans and they’ve secured the return of one of the players who could compete to replace him.

According to multiple reports, the Saints have re-signed guard Senio Kelemete to a two-year deal. It’s reportedly worth up to $4 million for a player who could have become a restricted free agent this week.

Kelemete, who also has experience at center, started five games for the Saints last season. He was a 2012 fifth-round pick of the Cardinals, played one game in Arizona and has appeared in 26 games for New Orleans the last two years.

Tim Lelito, who is also set for restricted free agency, and Andrus Peat also saw time at guard for the Saints last season. They are likely to get company this offseason as the Saints try to shore up the interior of the offensive line.

    Not a bad signing…Has some versatility, he even started at left tackle in the finale against the Falcons.

    Decent player with starter potential and keeps developing. Still need to draft a big mean guard though.
