The New Orleans Saints added another piece to attempt to beef up their defense as safety Jim Leonhard signed a one-year contract contract with the team Monday, Leonhard said via Twitter.

Leonhard spent last season with Denver as mostly a backup. Leonhard was a starter the previous four seasons with the Jets and the Ravens. Leonhard, 30, spent his first three seasons in Buffalo (2005-2007).

I really like the signing... especially for depth purposes. I wanted us to sign him a few years ago prior to him signing with the Jets. I'm a fan.

Re: BREAKING: Saints sign S Jim Leonhard

Probably want depth, in case Harper gets cut. IIRC Leonhard is primarily a free safety, but can play both.

I like him for depth, but not as a starter. It appears he's a bit injury prone.

Re: BREAKING: Saints sign S Jim Leonhard

I'm all for it. It gives us depth that we really need and could allow us to cut ties with one of our current safeties. If that's the direction that the FO wants to go then we can still address safety in the draft and it's not such a pressing matter come crunch time.
