NEW ORLEANS—New Orleans Saints Executive Vice President/General Manager Mickey Loomis announced Saturday that the club has agreed to terms with offensive lineman Nick Leckey and safety Pierson Prioleau on one-year contracts.
Leckey, a six-year veteran from Kansas State, signed with the Saints as an unrestricted free agent last offseason after prior stints with the St. Louis Rams and Arizona Cardinals. He played in eight games during the 2009 regular season, primarily on special teams with spot duty at center as well, and also appeared in all three postseason contests. The 6-3, 291-pound lineman has played in 65 games in his NFL career, starting 32.
Prioleau also signed with the Saints as a free agent prior to the 2009 campaign and led the team with 21 special teams tackles, playing in all 16 games with one start in his 11th NFL season. The 5-11, 188-pound product of Virginia Tech also made 18 tackles as a reserve defensive back with a pass defense and a fumble recovery. Prioleau played in all three postseason games and made four tackles on special teams to tie for the team lead. He has now played in 145 career games, having played previously with San Francisco, Buffalo, Washington and Jacksonville.
