Hood recorded one tackle (one solo), a sack, in the Saints' 16-13 loss to the Dolphins in Thursday's preseason finale.
Hood has played for four different teams in his 10-year career, most recently appearing in 13 contests with Washington and Miami last season. He has a chance to find a new home on a title contender if he makes the final 53-man roster.
Hood signed a contract with the Saints on Wednesday, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports.
Hood figures to provide the Saints with defensive line depth and veteran experience. The 10-year veteran appeared in 13 games between the Dolphins and Redskins in 2018, compiling nine tackles (four solo). Hood will work to earn a reserve role in New Orleans and isn't a lock to make the 53-man roster.
Hood (hamstring) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Bills, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports.

Hood is questionable to return to Sunday's game with a hamstring injury, Adam H. Beasley of the Miami Herald reports.

Hood signed with the Dolphins on Tuesday, Armando Salguero of The Miami Herald reports.
The 31-year-old defensive tackle saw action with Washington this season before he was released Oct. 16. Miami was dealt a blow to its defensive line when Vincent Taylor was carted off the field Thursday with a foot injury. If Taylor is unable to play Sunday, Hood could see some snaps at defensive tackle behind Davon Godchaux and Akeem Spence.
Hood was released by the Redskins on Tuesday, Kareem Copeland of The Washington Post reports.
Hood has been out of the rotation on the defensive line since Week 2, so this news is not all that surprising. The veteran will now look for a new landing spot. Tim Settle and Caleb Brantley are now the only depth defensive linemen on the Redskins' roster.
Hood (elbow) played 11 snaps in Thursday's preseason game against the Patriots.

Head coach Jay Gruden revealed Hood wouldn't require surgery to address the injury, but the nose tackle will be shut down nonetheless in order to recover from the setback. Hood will wrap up the 2017 campaign with 25 tackles (13 solo) and a half sack over 15 appearances.
Hood (elbow) will receive an MRI on Monday.
Per the report, Hood dislocated his elbow during Sunday's game and will have to undergo further evaluations to determine the extent of the injury. Hood's status for Week 17 should be more clear following the MRI results.
Hood injured his elbow and won't return to Sunday's game against the Broncos.
Hood went down in the first half and was originally considered doubtful to return, before ultimately being downgraded to out. The Redskins will turn to Stacy McGee to fill in at nose tackle.
Hood re-signed with the Redskins on Wednesday.
After signing a one-year deal with the Redskins in the spring of 2016, Hood appeared in all 16 games this past season, starting in 14 and cranking out 33 tackles and three passes defensed. With the release of incumbent starter Ricky Jean-Francois, he could be in the mix for starting duties ahead of the 2017 campaign.
Hood was released by the Bears on Tuesday, Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune reports.
A first-round selection back in 2009, Hood has just 12.5 sacks and 164 tackles in 96 career games. Wherever he might land, he'll likely have to compete for a back-end roster spot next season.
Hood signed with the Bears on Thursday, Adam Jahns of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.
Hood's signing coincides with the release of veteran defensive tackle Jeremiah Ratliff, who was dismissed from the team following a heated exchange with GM Ryan Pace outside of the Bears' practice facility Wednesday. A former first-round pick in 2009, Hood was placed on injured reserve by the Jaguars to open the season due to a foot ailment, but was released earlier this week. Given that he's now listed on the Bears' 53-man roster, Hood has presumably recovered from the injury and should be available in a backup capacity for the team's next game Nov. 1 against the Vikings.
