Report: Bobby McCray re-signs with Saints

A month later, Bobby McCray is back with the New Orleans Saints.

The defending Super Bowl champions surprisingly released the starting left end near the conclusion of the club’s offseason program. Now, McCray is back with the Saints, according to Mike Florio of PFT. Per the report, McCray’s deal has a base value of $1.5 million with an additional $1 million in incentives possible. Under the terms of his previous contract, McCray was to receive a $1.25 million roster bonus in July and a $2 million base salary, meaning the Saints have found a way to save at least $750,000 if not more.

A starting job will not be guaranteed for McCray. The Saints signed Alex Brown and the expectation is he will be first in line at left end this season. New Orleans will need players in a rotation and McCray certainly will have an opportunity to compete. Bringing back a veteran who has been a proven performer in the past is never a bad idea. Obvioiusly, McCray couldn’t find a more tempting deal in the month he spent as a free agent.
