Saints sign DL Fairley

The biggest issue for the Saints heading into the off-season: improving one of the worst defenses in the league.

Another step toward that today, with the signing of defensive lineman Nick Fairley.  He and the Saints agreed to a 1-year deal worth a reported 3 million and could be five with incentives. Some contracts shuffling will take place to fit his deal under the cap.

Fairley had some off-field issues, but, by the teams account seems to have turned a corner.  He was the 1st round pick of the Detroit Lions in 2011.  He had 14 sacks in 4 seasons.
