BTW, Brian de la Puente signed with Saints

Brian de la Puente signed a one year deal yesterday:

The New Orleans Saints have a greed to a one-year deal with exclusive rights free agent center Brian de la Puente, a league source confirmed. Since de la Puente is just a two-year veteran, the Saints could maintain exclusive rights to him by offering a one-year, $540,000 contract.

No doubt, de la Puente will earn bigger pay days down the road. The 26-year-old had a breakout season in 2011 after replacing veteran Olin Kruetz as the team's starter in October.

Yeah it is. If he can have the success he had last year, he will get his payday.

Another great Loomis signing. One year contracts still let us see how Tennant is doing.

Bargain price- can't imagine a starter making less than that. Hopefully he has a starts or plays bonus

The money was pretty much set because of the fact that he was an ERFA, because of that status the Saints only needed to hand him a minimum qualifying tender to retain his services.
