Michael Hoomanawanui found a nice little niche for himself in New Orleans last year, and they wanted to make sure he built on it.

According to Alex Marvez of FOXSports.com, the Saints have signed the veteran tight end to a new three-year contract in advance of free agency.

The Saints acquired Hoomanawanui in a trade with the Patriots last fall, and he played in 12 games for the Saints.

He wasn’t exactly Jimmy Graham, as he caught just 11 passes for 76 yards and three touchdowns in New Orleans. But he did carve out a role as a blocker and an H-back, someone versatile and useful as they try to re-tool their offense.
