Saints re-sign Ramon Humber

The New Orleans Saints announced that they have agreed to a one-year deal with linebacker/special teams ace Ramon Humber. Terms have not been disclosed.

Humber, 26, has been one of the Saints’ top special teams players since he first arrived in 2010. And he proved to be an asset on defense when they used him more than ever as a backup linebacker last season. Humber started four games, including one in the playoffs. He finished with 29 regular-season tackles. And the Saints credited him with seven tackles during the season-ending playoff loss in Seattle.

Humber (5-foot-11, 232 pounds) has a total of 63 tackles and 1.5 sacks with the Saints. He began his career as an undrafted free agent with the Indianapolis Colts in 2009.
