The New Orleans Saints announced today that they have agreed to terms with defensive tackle Isaako Aaitui on a two-year contract. The announcement was made by Saints' Executive Vice President/General Manager Mickey Loomis.
Aaitui (full name pronounced e-saw-AH-co ah-ah-2-e), 6-foot-4, 315 pounds, originally joined the practice squad of the Miami Dolphins midseason in 2011, spending the 2012 preseason with both the Dolphins and the New York Jets. The Pago Pago native was a four-year letterman and two-year starter at UNLV, where as a senior in 2010, he was a third-team all-Mountain West Conference selection, appearing in 13 games with 12 starts and ranking second on the Rebels with five tackles for a loss.
