The Saints have locked up a pair of key contributors. OT Jermon Bushrod and TE David Thomas signed their restricted free-agent tenders Tuesday, and DT Remi Ayodele was expected to follow their lead and sign his tender.

Bushrod started at left tackle last season, but it's not clear what his role will be next season as OLT Jammal Brown is healthy and looking to take his starting job back after missing all of last season. Brown was sidelined after undergoing surgeries.

Thomas was a valuable contributor last season. He took snaps at tight end and also lined up as a lead blocker in the backfield.

Ayodele, who had not started a game prior to 2009, started 13 games last season.
