The New Orleans Saints have signed RB Fred McAfee, it was announced by Executive Vice President/General Manager Mickey Loomis. McAfee, a 15-year veteran, is in his fourth stint with the Saints and is considered one of the top special teams performers of his era. Voted to the Pro Bowl in 2002 for his special teams contributions, McAfee also played in New Orleans from 1991-93, from 2000-03 and from 2004-05. He went to training camp with the team in 2006. In 2005, he led the Saints with a career-high 30 (22 solo) special teams stops. He also retuned 22 kickoffs for 485 yards and led the team with a 22.0 kickoff return average.

"We are glad to have Fred back in the fold. He is very familiar with our team," said Executive Vice President/General Manager Mickey Looms. "He brings veteran experience, leadership and he has proven that he is one of the top special teams in the league on a year-in and year-out basis."
