Reis staying with Saints

Another day, another restricted free agent has signed his tender with the New Orleans Saints.

The latest to sign is safety Chris Reis, the team announced Wednesday morning. Reis has been a backup the past three seasons and has been most significant as a special-teams player. In fact, he was a key figure in one of the biggest plays in franchise history.

Reis was the guy who recovered the onside kick on the opening play of the second half of Super Bowl XLIV. The deadline for restricted free agents to receive offers from other teams is Thursday.
