Jason LaCanfora broke the news via Twitter about an hour ago.

Saints have signed DE Jimmy Wilkerson to a one-year deal. Nice move for another veteran fee agent for their rotation.

Wilkerson joins Alex Brown as one of only two big signings by the Saints so far this off-season and adds even more versatility and depth to the defensive line.

Of course this opens things up for discussion regarding what position the Saints will draft with their first round pick. It's looking more and more like outside linebacker is becoming their biggest position of need.

What are you guys thinking and feeling?
