The New Orleans Saints have signed offensive lineman Senio Kelemete to a two-year contract extension, a source told NOLA.com | The Times-Picayune on Sunday.

Kelemete was set to become a restricted free agent next week. By signing him to new a contract, the Saints avoided the tender process.

ESPN Staff Writer

The Saints and G Senio Kelemete agreed to a two-year contract, per source. Kelemete, 25, was scheduled to be a restricted free agent. Rather than tender him, the Saints worked out a two-year deal. Terms have not been disclosed. Kelemete, who was a backup and spot starter last year, should have a chance to compete for one of the Saints' starting guard jobs after they let go of veteran Jahri Evans last month.

I know you guys don't like him but we need depth too and he could start if need be at guard or center. High character guy that I'm glad we'll keep around.

Not worth the 2 million a year he got. Never thought they would spend that much. I figured that would be Leito's deal. No telling what he will get now.

I can only see this is as a leverage signing with non-guaranteed funds so as to go into negotiations with Lelito and Left-Guard-To-Be-Named...

Again, had a helluva an opportunity last season to sign Cincinnati Free Agent Left Guard Clint Boling last season for essentially 5.25 mil/season...

Boling grades out well with PFF and he man-handled our defense the season before, In Our House!!!

Worst case, we could have had Boling for 5.5 mil, maybe 6 mil/season, virtually giving us some salary cap room...

And essentially locked up the interior of the line with Lelito for four years making the entire unit near elite again...

But Brandon Browner got the money instead...

Executive of the Year, my a$$; sorry to hurt some of y'all's feelings, but...

In Loomis, I do not trust...

Thankfully we've got Ireland now; maybe he can continue to guide us toward better personnel moves...

90% of the leagues back ups could man handle our D. And Loomis did not pick Browner. Loomis just got the money. Payton and his coaching staff along with his scouts picked Browner. When are people going to learn that Loomis is the money man. Payton has full control of the team otherwise.
