Saints | Fontenot Close To Signing One-Year Deal

Brian Allee-Walsh, of the New Orleans Times-Picayune, reports free agent C Jerry Fontenot is expected to sign a one-year contract to return the New Orleans Saints. Fontenot has started the past seven seasons with the Saints, but will likely play in a backup role under the new deal. "Playing backup is not a problem, and if that's the way things end up with the Saints, I have no problem with that," said Fontenot. Saints general manager Mickey Loomis said he offered a one-year deal to Fontenot on Tuesday, May 4, but he had yet to hear back from Fontenot's agent, Tony Agnone. As of Thursday, May 6, Fontenot was seeking an option year to his contract with Saints team officials.
