The Saints re-signed veteran kicker Martin Gramatica on Tuesday after his terrific three-game audition at the end of last season, setting up a battle between him and veteran Olindo Mare in training camp. Details of the contract were not released.
Gramatica, 32, made all five of his field-goal attempts in December, including a 55-yarder against Philadelphia in Week 16. He was signed after Mare suffered a season-ending hip injury in Week 14.
Mare, 34, had surgery in the offseason but will be ready to kick by the first minicamp, according to his agent, Drew Rosenhaus. Full Story – Picayunehttp://www.nola.com/saints/t-p/?/base/sports-4/120288377858230.xml&coll=1
