Saints re-sign DE McCray and sign rookie C Tennant

By Jeff Shepard – bio | email

NEW ORLEANS (AP) - Defensive end Bobby McCray is returning to New Orleans only one month after the Saints unexpectedly waived him.

Saints general manager Mickey Loomis says McCray signed a one-year contract on Thursday, the same day fifth-round draft choice Matt Tennant signed a four-year deal.

McCray, a six-year veteran, was with the Saints the past two seasons, playing in all 32 regular season games and started eight. He also started all three playoff games last season during the Saints' Super Bowl championship run.

Tennant started three seasons at center for Boston College.

The Saints also have waived former LSU linebacker Harry Coleman, as well as linebacker Sam Maxwell, defensive end Brandon Sharpe and cornerback Marcell Young.
