The New Orleans Saints agree to terms with former Saint, Lion, Redskin and Bear full back Michael Burton on a one-year deal. The Saints brought in Burton last offseason to compete for the full back job that Zach Line eventually won, Burton didn’t make the team. With Line entering retirement, the Saints are signing Burton who is the projected starter if they do not add anyone else.
