The Saints have re-signed linebacker Michael Mauti to a one-year deal, his agent, Mike McCartney, tweeted.

Mauti, 28, spent the past three seasons with the Saints. He has played 35 games with four starts for New Orleans, making 42 tackles and a sack.

He started his career in Minnesota after the Vikings made him a seventh-round pick in 2013. He played 23 games and made 18 tackles in two seasons with the Vikings.

Mauti didn’t make the Saints’ season-opening roster last season but signed October 18 and played 11 games with two starts.

  1. this dude is a D player across the board but a B minus blitzer. so when he starts we get ripped but we continually threaten to send him thru and make things manageable.

    a garbage version of danell ellerbe perhaps?

  2. Just watched NFL timeline on Amazon about the rebirth in N.O. after hurricane Katrina and Mauti was a part of the story.
    Great story with Gleason getting a statue and his fight now.

  3. Great guy all around — too bad his zillion knee injuries/surgeries have limited his mobility.

  4. Good, tough high energy teams standout with talent to
    play in situations and succeed. He has had bad luck
    with injuries and physical problems out of his control.
    He is an asset to any team. I hope his problems
    subside to allow him to be the player he can be.

  5. Didn’t his colon fall out or something? The Gleason-esque blocked punt and the snot-bubble hit on Newton make him a Saint for life…

  6. Considering he’s had a bazillion knee surgeries and also has no large intestine, he’s done OK for himself. Great guy.
