Te'o (Achilles) is close to agreeing to a contract with the Saints, ESPN's Dan Graziano reports.

Te'o was restricted to just three games last season due to a torn Achilles, but his potential signing would still figure to help a New Orleans defense in desperate need of improvement. Prior to last year, he totaled at least 60 tackles in each of his first three NFL seasons. Although he's never played more than 13 games in a given campaign, Te'o's career average of nearly six tackles per game is commendable.
