Saints keep Leckey, Prioleau

The Saints just officially announced they’ve re-signed a couple of their own free agents. Offensive linemen Nick Leckey and safety Pierson Prioleau have agreed to one-year contracts.

These aren’t huge moves, but they are steps towards keeping the depth that helped the Saints win the Super Bowl. Prioleau wasn’t much of a factor in the secondary last season but he led the team with 21 tackles on special teams and has experience with defensive coordinator Gregg Williams dating back to their days together in Jacksonville.

The Saints have a very solid starting offensive line, but the recent release of backup Jamar Nesbit makes the signing of Leckey important. He can play center and guard and probably is the top interior backup at the moment.
