The New Orleans Saints officially signed DB Anthony Gaitor and LB Adam Bighill to future/reserve contracts on Friday.
The Saints have now signed 11 players to futures deals since their season ended including:
- TE Garrett Griffin (NFLTR)
- G John Fullington
- QB Garrett Grayson
- DT Ashaad Mabry
- TE Jake Stoneburner
- WR Jordan Williams
- DT Justin Zimmer
- DE Royce LaFrance
- DB Forrest Hightower
- DB Anthony Gaitor
- LB Adam Bighil
Future/reserve contracts are essentially an opportunity for players compete for a roster spot in offseason workouts and during training camp.
Gaitor, 28, is a former seventh-round pick of the Buccaneers back in 2011. He spent over two years in Tampa Bay before brief stints with the Dolphins and Buccaneers.
The Cardinals eventually signed him to their practice squad at the start of the 2014 season but he lasted just a month with the team.
In 2012, Gaitor appeared in four games and recorded seven tackles and five pass defenses for the Buccaneers.
Gaitor spent the 2016 season with the BC Lions of the CFL and totaled 35 tackles, two interceptions with one being returned for a touchdown and a forced fumble.
