Despite previously not tendering fourth-year cornerback Justin Hardee, the New Orleans Saints have decided to keep the special-teams ace around for at least another year.

Hardee and the Saints agreed to a one-year deal to keep him in The Big Easy today.

Hardee has been a core special teams member for three years now, accounting for at least 280 snaps in every season of his career in New Orleans.

This was yet another move to prove Mickey Loomis and the front office’s intentions to keep as many players from the 2019 squad around as possible, to chase a ring in 2020.
