Saints sign Coleman, McCown

The New Orleans Saints agreed to terms on one- year contracts with defensive end Kenyon Coleman and quarterback Luke McCown on Monday.

Financial terms of the deals were not disclosed.

Coleman spent the past two seasons with the Dallas Cowboys, but appeared in just seven games last season because of a triceps injury. He recorded 22 tackles and forced one fumble. Coleman will be reunited with former Dallas defensive coordinator Rob Ryan, who was hired for the same position with the Saints in the offseason.

Over 141 games with the Cowboys, New York Jets, Cleveland Browns and Oakland Raiders, the UCLA product has recorded 400 tackles, 13 1/2 sacks and two forced fumbles.

McCown is entering his 10th season in the NFL. The Louisiana Tech product has played in 22 career games with Cleveland, Tampa Bay, Jacksonville and Atlanta. He has thrown for 2,035 yards, nine touchdowns and 14 interceptions.
