(AP) - The New Orleans Saints have added veteran
linebacker Danny Clark to their roster, marking his second stint
with the club since the Sean Payton era began in 2006.
The 33-year-old Clark, now in his 11th season, also was with the
club in 2006. His addition adds depth to a linebacker corps
depleted by a season-ending foot injury to projected weakside
starter Jonathan Casillas.
Clark, who is 6-foot-2 and 223 pounds, began 2010 training camp
in Houston, but was released on Sunday. Clark started eight games
for the Texans in 2007 and 26 games over the past two seasons with
the New York Giants.
The Saints got a good look at Clark in August when they held
joint training camp practices and a preseason game with Houston.
