The New Orleans Saints have announced Monday that Head Coach Sean Payton and the team have agreed to terms on a new contract that will extend through the 2015 season.
“I am very pleased to announce this contract extension today for Sean that will run through the 2015 season,” said Saints Owner Tom Benson. “Our goal is to continue to build a TRADITION of winning here in New Orleans and Sean represents that tradition
The New Orleans Saints will sign veteran tight end John Gilmore on Monday. He was drafted by the Saints in 2002 and was recently released by the Steelers. He spent the last three seasons with the Buccaneers. Prior to that, he was with the Bears for 6 seasons.
The Saints have only two tight ends on their roster. Jimmy Graham is expected to be used mainly as a receiver and David Thomas has good versatility. Gilmore is a blocking specialist.
The Saints will have to release a player to make room on their roster for Gilmore.
