Saints agree to deals with DE Coleman, QB McCown

NEW ORLEANS (AP) — Saints general manager Mickey Loomis says New Orleans and unrestricted free agents, defensive end Kenyon

Coleman and quarterback Luke McCown, have agreed to terms on one-year contracts.

The 6-foot-5, 293-pound Coleman has spent

the last two seasons as a starting defensive end in Dallas' 3-4

alignment. He will

rejoin new Saints defensive coordinator Rob Ryan, who held the

same position with the Cowboys during Coleman's time in Dallas.

McCown, 6-4, 217-pounds, is a former

fourth-round selection of the Cleveland Browns who went to training camp

with the Saints

last season. McCown, a former Louisiana Tech standout, has played

in 22 NFL games with nine starts in stints with Cleveland,

Tampa Bay, Jacksonville and Atlanta. He has completed 184 of 316

passes for 2,035 yards with nine touchdowns and 14 interceptions.
