Sanford Re-signs 1 year deal

By Evan Woodbery, NOLA.com | The Times-Picayune

Veteran safety Jamarca Sanford has agreed to a one-year contract to return to the New Orleans Saints in 2015, agent Drew Rosenhaus told NOLA.com | The Times-Picayune on Friday.

Sanford's signing leaves the Saints with 10 free agents remaining from the 2014 roster. Unsigned players become unrestricted free agents on Wednesday. The negotiating window begins on Saturday.

Three restricted free agents -- defensive tackle Tyrun Walker, running back Travaris Cadet and offensive tackle Bryce Harris -- are not likely to be extended tender offers by the Saints.

The seven remaining unrestricted free agents are: running back Mark Ingram, receiver Robert Meachem, center Jonathan Goodwin, defensive lineman Brandon Deaderick, linebackers Ramon Humber and Moise Fokou and cornerback Patrick Robinson.

Terms of the contract were not immediately disclosed, but Sanford likely signed for a base salary of $745,000, the minimum for a player with six years of league service. The contract would count only $585,000 (plus any bonuses) against the salary cap because of the NFL's veteran minimum benefit.

"Two receivers to the left, Garcon to the right. Manning in the shotgun, puts Collie in motion. Looks in his direction...it's picked off! It's picked off! It's Tracy Porter again! He's runnin' free! He's gonna go all the way!

I like this move. Solid player and some might say a better strong safety than Vaccaro. I'd rather have Sanford back there than Marcus Ball.

Re: Sanford Re-signs 1 year deal

great move. Jamarca provides great depth. Keep Lofton and go for an edge rusher that can stand up if needed. Gallette is gone

If we are letting all these veterans go then a calming presence would be a good thing to have in the locker room. Not only that he's got some skill.
