Saints bringing back veterans Leckey, Prioleau on one-year deals

METAIRIE, La. -- The New Orleans Saints have agreed to one-year contracts with offensive lineman Nick Leckey and safety Pierson Prioleau.

Saints general manager Mickey Loomis announced the deals Saturday without disclosing financial terms.

Both players had signed one-year deals with the Saints last season and played reserve roles on New Orleans' first Super Bowl championship team.

Leckey, a six-year veteran, played in eight games and all three playoff games in 2009, mostly on special teams, with some work at center.

Prioleau, an 11-year veteran, led the Saints with 21 special-teams tackles. He played in every game in 2009, making 18 tackles as a reserve defensive back with one pass defensed and one fumble recovery.
