he New Orleans Saints and free agent linebacker Clint Ingram have agreed to terms on a one-year contract, team officials said late Wednesday afternoon. Financial terms of the deal were not immediately disclosed.

Ingram, 27, spent the first four years of his NFL career with Jacksonville after being drafted out of Oklahoma. In that stretch he was credited with 159 tackles and 5.5 sacks. He also had two interceptions, one of which he returned for a touchdown.

In 2008, Ingram worked with Saints defensive coordinator Gregg Williams when Williams was with the Jaguars and thus he should be familiar with the Saints defensive schemes.

His addition helps plug a roster hole that opened when linebacker Scott Fujita signed a $14 million deal with the Cleveland Browns, and bolsters a defensive front seven Saints officials identified as the area of most concern in the offseason.
