  • Saints' Tyrann Mathieu: Inks new deal with New Orleans

    The Saints re-signed Mathieu on a two-year, $13 million contract Thursday, Josina Anderson of CBS Sports reports.

    The 31-year-old has officially agreed to terms to stay in New Orleans after spending the last two years with the team.

Assuming he can avoid injury, the 2013 third-rounder should maintain his every-down role as the Saints' starting free safety in 2024.
