With still more than two months until training camp, the Saints have wrapped up contracts with all six of their draft picks.

The club has reached a four-year agreement with inside linebacker Khairi Fortt, a fourth-round selection from California, the team said Monday.

The 6-foot-2, 240-pound Fortt notched 64 tackles (3.5 for loss) for Cal in 2013. He played for Penn State from 2010 through 2011, recording 50 stops for the Nittany Lions.

The Saints’ starting inside linebackers from 2013 (Curtis Lofton, David Hawthorne) return for 2014, which could leave Fortt to vie for a backup role in the club’s 3-4 scheme in his first NFL season.

The Bears, like the Saints, have contracts done with all of their draft selections.

Re: Saints reach deal with LB Khairi Fortt

it won't be long now that all have signed. they will be hitting the books hard. seems like the nfl would have to go to court to get the position change corrected in the rules of player position in line with paying as per what you are classified to be. I don't mean to throw jimmy under the bus but this is starting to make my ass itch, get ur done dammit.

I watched some video of this guy and Im pretty impressed at his speed. Not only is he fast,he does a good job of shedding blockers and is a good tackler. I hope he stays healthy.
