METAIRIE, La. -- 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.
