The Saints have signed Keyunta Dawson to a one-year, minimum-salary contract extension, reports Brian McIntyre (via Twitter). The veteran DE/OLB received a $5K guaranteed signing bonus in the deal, according to McIntyre.
Dawson, 28, has only played in 13 games over the last three seasons, and he saw just 105 snaps with the Saints in his 2013 stint with the team. In those six games with New Orleans, he recorded three tackles and a half-sack, and forced a fumble.
Dawson’s cap number will be $575K for 2014, though assuming he earns a spot on the roster and remains in the league for the entire season, he’ll earn a slightly larger salary than that.
