The New Orleans Saints continued their busy day on Tuesday by coming to an agreement on a five-year deal with kicker Garrett Hartley.

Adam Schefter of ESPN is reporting that the Saints have agreed to the deal with Hartley and he is poised to sign it on Wednesday.

Hartley was scheduled to be a restricted free agent when free agency began on March 4, but the Saints decided that his inconsistency this season was now a thing of the past.

I'm suppose to be happy about this, part of me is disappointed with this signing. They give this head case a 5 yr deal and only tender Lance Moore a 1 yr deal wth

I think it's good that we locked up a kicker. We can either take others throw aways(which has failed) or continue to Draft Rookies that will have their lumps starting out. Hartly is no where near awful.

I'm pretty sure they're waiting for the new CBA before signing him to any sort of extension. The thing with Moore is that while he's arguably our most reliable receiver, I think it's hard to gauge his true worth. Are we going to give him a Berrian type contract or something like Devery's? I think it's wise to tender him... ensuring that we keep him and let the market help us determine what we're going to pay him.

It's not like he's going anywhere... I don't understand the rush. It's smart business to wait this out a bit.

I knew the Hartley news would stir the pot... I agree with Papz, there is probably a ton of other stuff going on here.

I don't think Lance Moore is going anywhere anytime soon.

I think we all forget what it's like to have zero kicker to work with.

i agree, if orlando mare is 1 of them i agree with that too. he was 1 of our biggest failures of late. its like he would miss on purpose to get the hell out of town. did anyone else have that feeling? then he gets to seattle and he rellapses to being a decent kicker.
