Saints' Darryl Tapp: Re-signs with Saints
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tapp re-signed with the Saints on Thursday, Larry Holder of The Times-Picayune reports.

Tapp will be entering his 12th NFL season in 2017. In 2016, his first year with New Orleans, Tapp played in all 16 games, recording 17 tackles, including 0.5 sacks. He'll likely be a backup player once again in the upcoming campaign.

Saints' Terron Armstead: Reworks contract to open cap space
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Armstead had his $5 million roster bonus converted to a signing bonus in order to free up $4 million in cap space for New Orleans, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

Armstead, a former first-round pick, signed a long-term extension with the Saints last offseason and was willing to restructure his deal to give the team some extra flexibility this offseason. He ended last season on injured reserve but is now healthy and will slot back in as the team's starting left tackle in 2017.

Moore signed a one-year contract with the Saints on Tuesday, Jenna Laine of reports.

Moore will remain in New Orleans, where he recorded 56 tackles, 13 pass deflections and two interceptions through 13 games last season. He'll likely compete with Delvin Breaux and P.J. Williams for a starting gig at cornerback.

Saints' Manti Te'o: Reaches two-year pact with Saints
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Te'o (Achilles) has agreed to a two-year deal with the Saints,'s Mike Triplett reports.

Looking to bounce back from a torn Achilles suffered in September, the 26-year-old linebacker will join a Saints defense that seemingly has bigger issues than its linebacking corps. While there appears to be ample competition at the position, the Saints don't have any proven standout performers, which means Te'o should at least have the opportunity to compete for a starting job. He started 34 of his 38 games during a four-year run in San Diego, with injuries limiting him to 13 or fewer appearances each season, though he still averaged 5.8 tackles per game.

Saints' Travaris Cadet: Only gets $80k signing bonus
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cadet only received an $80,000 signing bonus on his one-year contract with the Saints, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

The contract suggests Cadet may ultimately have to fight for a roster spot, though he looks like a lock when merely taking the current composition of the team into account. If the Saints do improve their backfield through the upcoming draft, Cadet might be left to compete with 2016 seventh-rounder Daniel Lasco and 2015 seventh-rounder Marcus Murphy for only one or two roster spots. Cadet does have a veteran's minimum cap benefit contract working in his favor -- which means part of his salary won't count against the Saints' cap space. Furthermore, the 28-year-old has a track record serving as a useful pass catcher for Drew Brees.
