The Saints and Savage agreed to a one-year contract Wednesday, Cameron Wolfe of ESPN.com reports.

Selected in the fourth round of the 2014 NFL Draft by the Texans, Savage didn't fare well in his 13 appearances (nine starts) over the last four seasons. Notably, his touchdown rate was a pitiful 2.2 percent, he tossed more interceptions (six) than TDs (five) and surpassed 300 yards in a game just one time. In his new locale, Savage will be in a cushy spot on the depth chart behind Drew Brees, who recently re-upped with the Saints for another two years.
