Saints spokesman Greg Bensel says Strief, a restricted free agent this offseason, signed his tender offer from the club on Monday.
Strief played in every game last season, starting twice at tackle during the regular season. He also subbed in routinely as a blocking tight end.
Strief, 26, was drafted out of Northwestern in the seventh round in 2006. He has played in 57 regular-season games, starting five. He also has appeared in all five of the Saints' playoff games since he joined the club.
