The Saints have re-signed long snapper Zach Wood to a 1-year, $555,000 deal, a source confirmed -- no surprise since he was an exclusive rights free agent who played well after signing with New Orleans just days before the regular season started last year. It's possible the Saints will bring in some competition for him, but the former Cowboys defensive lineman has a good chance to lock down the job after his promising debut season. Wood's new deal was first reported by NOLA.com.

$3.4 million of Coby Fleener's $6.3 million salary for 2018 is scheduled to become fully guaranteed on Wednesday. But it's possible that the Saints could not save that money even if they wanted to release the veteran tight end, since the money is already guaranteed for injury and Fleener finished last season on injured reserve with a concussion. Fleener, 29, is a potential roster cut this year because of his lofty salary and the fact that he played only about 24 snaps per game last year. He finished with 22 catches for 295 yards and two touchdowns in 11 games.
