  • Saints' Michael Mauti: Re-signs with Saints
    By RotoWire Staff

    Mauti agreed to re-sign with the Saints on Tuesday, Mike Triplett of ESPN reports. Mauti, a former Saints' special teams captain, took a break from the field last season to deal with a longtime battle with ulcerative colitis. He returned to training camp this year, but failed to make the final roster. An injury to the team's current special teams captain, Nathan Stupar, presumably opened the door for Mauti's return.

  • Saints' Michael Mauti: Re-signs with New Orleans
    By RotoWire Staff

    Mauti signed a one-year contract with the Saints on Monday, Josh Katzenstein of The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports. Mauti, who has accrued 46 tackles in 24 games for the Saints the last two seasons, missed the final eight contests of the 2016 campaign due to ulcerative colitis, an illness he's dealt with since his days at Penn State. With that issue in the rearview for now, Mauti will look to reclaim his role as a special teams captain in advance of Week 1.

  • Mauti, who has dealt with ulcerative colitis since his senior year at Penn State, hopes to return in 2017 following three surgeries, Mike Triplett of ESPN.com reports. Mauti is currently a free agent and is progressing through his recovery, but he has remained in touch with the Saints while he continues to gain weight in hopes of returning to his usual playing weight. He's still limited in terms of physical activity, but he's expecting to resume full training sometime in May.

  • Saints' Michael Mauti: Undergoing procedure
    By RotoWire Staff

    Mauti (illness) will undergo a procedure related to his illness and will miss a significant amount of time, Josh Katzenstein of NOLA.com reports. No specifics on the illness have been released but news of the procedure combined with Mauti's placement on the reserve/non-football injury list Monday does not bode well for the linebacker's status the remainder of the season. Look for more updates to come as the team updates the situation. In the meantime, newly signed linebacker Sam Barrington is expected to have an expanded role on the defense.

  • The Saints placed Mauti (illness) on this reserve/non-football injury list Monday, Adam Caplan of ESPN reports. Mauti missed Sunday's loss to the Broncos due to an illness. Not much was known about the illness at the time, but his placement on the NFI list is certainly not a positive sign. Expect an update on his status when the team releases more information.
