Nick Underhill reports that the Saints are signing LS/DL Zach Wood to a contract on Friday.
Underhill mentions that Wood will replace LS Jon Dorenbos, who requires open heart surgery due to an aortic aneurysm.
Wood, 24, went undrafted out of SMU back in May of last year before signing a three-year, $1.62 million contract with the Cowboys. However, Dallas decided to waive him as they trimmed their roster down to the 53-man limit. and then signed him to a one-year futures deal back in January.
The Cowboys later re-signed him to a one-year futures deal back in January but was waived once again as the team worked down their roster.
He has yet to appear in an NFL game.
