New Orleans Saints Sign Mike Golic, Jr.

Robert Mayer-USA TODAY Sports

The Saints may have quietly added some competition at the center position by signing former Steelers interior lineman Mike Golic, Jr.

In addition to all of their undrafted free agent signings tonight, the Saints have also added a little veteran depth by signing offensive guard Mike Golic, Jr. to a two-year contract, according to Adam Caplan.

Golic was signed this time last year as an undrafted free agent coming out of Notre Dame by the Steelers but was cut by the team after training camp and spent time on their practice squad.

While listed as a guard, Golic is versatile enough to play center, which might be exactly why the Saints have decided to bring him on board. Here's a little background on him from Behind the Steel Curtain:

When traits like "competitive" and "tough" are listed as a player's strengths, it's hard to ignore him, even if he doesn't have ideal size. Listed as 6-foot-4, 300 pounds (a bit generous), he isn't a great athlete, but he's that kind of "phone booth fighter" that makes for a good interior lineman, if for nothing more than depth on an NFL team.

Golic, Jr. is the son of former NFL defensive tackle and ESPN radio host Mike Golic, Sr.
