NEW ORLEANS ― Saints defensive back Usama Young will sign his tender, his agent confirmed Wednesday.

The Saints tendered Young at $1.101 million and a third-round status and becomes the second restricted free agent to commit to the Saints on Wednesday. Fellow defensive back Chris Reis signed earlier in the day.

Young will enter his fourth season with the Saints out of Kent State. He has 83 career tackles, 11 passes defensed and three interceptions. In 2009, he played in 12 games, coming through with eight tackles and one interception

This should be Young's year. I hope he can step up.

Re: Usama Young to Sign Tender

I only view Usama Young as a solid Special teams player, don't believe hes the future at safety.

Won't get flamed by me. Definitely better at safety than at corner, but not even that good there, either. He's even overshadowed on special teams. Maybe with another full year figuring out the position he may improve, but he has to step up. If not, then I don't see him being back after this season.

Don't forget, Usama's a small school kid who was drafted as a project. He's been developing in our system for three seasons. He may not be a starter yet, but he provides depth.

With you all the way. Young is not a starter in the NFL. The one series he came in during the Super Bowl, he got beaten BAD for a touchdown. And he's not a rookie anymore, he's had a few years in the league, I'm done waiting for him to develop.

That's why he's not being paid starter money. He's signed his tender as a backup/ST player, let's see if he makes it through camp.

I see us drafting another CB this year anyway.

Re: Usama Young to Sign Tender

I went to Kent, so I really wanted to see him do well (we lived in the same dorm, 20 years apart).
I just don't think he has the tools. I'm fine with him at $1 mill a year.
