The Saints signed former Dolphins RB and special-teams contributor Patrick Cobbs on Tuesday.
Cobbs, a fifth-year veteran, played in 54 games with the Dolphins and had six career touchdowns (two rushing, four receiving).
In 2010, Cobbs played in all 16 games, with one start, and had two TD catches. He made most of his contributions on special teams, recording six special-teams tackles.
Cobbs joins his former teammate, and another special-teams standout, Jonathon Amaya, whom the Dolphins traded to the Saints as part of the Reggie Bush deal.
