Former Bears FB Jason McKie signed a one-year contract with the Saints on Monday.
McKie, a ninth-year veteran, started 11 games or more in three of the past four seasons. He was used almost exclusively as a blocker during his time in Chicago and only has 29 career carries.
He could make the Saints' roster as a backup for Heath Evans, who is recovering from surgery to repair a torn ACL. There's a chance McKie could fill in if Evans isn't ready to play when the regular season begins.
