Report: Saints Sign LB Keyunta Dawson To An Extension

Brian McIntyre reports that the New Orleans Saints re-signed DE/OLB Keyunta Dawson to one-year extension on Tuesday.

  • McIntyre adds that this is a “minimum salary benefit deal” that will guarantee him just $5,000.
  • According to McIntyre, Dawson will have a $575,000 cap figure next season.

Dawson, 28, appeared in eight games for the Saints in 2013 totaling three tackles, a half-sack, and one forced fumble. He played just 55 snaps for the Saints this past season, according to Pro Football Focus, but was decent at dropping into coverage.

It seems likely that Dawson will have to compete for a roster spot during training camp.
