Saints sign K Shayne Graham and T Harris
 
After making their first big moves of the offseason on Wednesday, the Saints have re-signed three players including veteran kicker Shayne Graham.

Graham, a 13-year veteran who signed with the Saints on Dec. 18 after kicker Garrett Hartley was released, was scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent on March 11.

Harris played in all 16 regular-season games with one start at right tackle against the New England Patriots. He played extensively on special teams and also lined up as an extra tight end for blocking purposes.

Odds that Bryce Harris is our starting RT next season? Pretty damn good. I just don't see how we would resign him before Strief if we didn't have plans for him.

I could see it being a little about leverage too. Now we have a RT on the rooster which makes Strief not being a "must have" anymore. Also a factor is that he is dirt cheap.

Harris At 6'6" and 320lbs, an exclusive free agent, who knows the offense...I would say a insurance policy should Strief sign elsewhere. I read the Browns might be a possible landing spot for Strief. Or, Kromer and Bears putting together Saints v.2.

Im guessing the front office expect to loose Strief and will let Harris battle with a mide round high upside draft pick for the starting spot the same as last year.I wouldnt be surprised to see another vet on minimum brought in like Jason Smith last year

Two years ago Strief mentioned on WWL that Folks should keep an eye on Harris, he's got talent and can play in this league.

The Saints may have a challenger on the PS. Marcel Jones, 6'7" 320lbs from Nebraska.
