With their secondary rocked by injuries, the New Orleans Saints have agreed to terms with veteran free-agent cornerback Chris McAlister, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.
McAlister was the tenth overall pick in the 1999 draft, and he spent ten years with the Ravens. He fell out of favor last year, during coach John Harbaugh’s first season with the team.
In September, McAlister was telling friends that he planned to sign with the Raiders.
It remains to be seen whether McAlister has anything left. But the Saints have a need, and now McAlister could end up getting a ring to go with the one he won in his second NFL season.
To create a spot for McAlister, the Saints cut rookie quarterback Chase Daniel.
