Saints Confirm Jason McKie Signing

The New Orleans Saints have confirmed the signing of free agent fullback Jason McKie, reports Mike Triplett of The Times-Picayune.

McKie signed a one-year contract, and a pair of undrafted free agents--running back Carlos Brown (Michigan) and safety Ryan Hamilton (Vanderbilt)--have been waived.

McKie, 30, was released by the Chicago Bears on March 16 after seven seasons. The Bears had claimed McKie off waivers from the Dallas Cowboys in the summer of 2003. McKie began his NFL career as an undrafted free agent out of Temple with the Philadelphia Eagles in 2002, spending most of that first season on the Eagles' practice squad before being signed to the Cowboys' active roster.

The 5-11, 247-pounder appeared in 87 games for the Bears, carrying the ball 29 times for 84 yards and 3 touchdowns. He also caught 68 passes for 364 yards and 3 touchdowns as a receiver out of the backfield.
