MIAMI (Reuters) - NFL champions, the New Orleans Saints have agreed to terms on a two-year contract with free agent defensive end Alex Brown, the team said on Wednesday.

Brown, a former fourth-round draft pick of the Chicago Bears in 2002, has played his entire eight-year NFL career with the Bears, appearing in 127 regular season games with 107 starts.

The 30-year-old Floridian was released by Chicago last week despite having started all 16 games last season when he made 37 tackles with five sacks.
