The Saints signed one of their draft picks Thursday and re-signed a player they recently cut.

DE Bobby McCray, who was released by New Orleans on June 21, signed a one-year deal with the team. McCray spent the past two seasons with the Saints and started in the postseason as the team made its run to a championship. He's a pass-rushing specialist and could share time with DEs Alex Brown and Jimmy Wilkerson opposite DE Charles Grant.

New Orleans also signed fifth-round pick Matt Tennant to a four-year deal. Tennant will back up Jonathan Goodwin at center.

In PFW's 2010 Draft Preview, PFW personnel analyst Nolan Nawrocki wrote that the Boston College product is "smart, tough, durable and experienced and has solid developmental potential."
