The New Orleans Saints have signed veteran defensive tackle Ziggy Hood, according to NFL Network insider Ian Rapoport.

The Saints will be without Sheldon Rankins as he continues to recover from a torn ACL, and David Onyemata who was hit with a one-game suspension last month.

The New Orleans Saints and wide receiver Michael Thomas are discussing a contract extension, according to Saints general manager Mickey Loomis, during an interview with Adam Schein of Mad Dog Sports Radio.

“We’ve had some conversations,” Loomis said during the appearance. “We love what Mike’s done for us. He’s a fantastic player, one of the best in the league. Hopefully, we can keep him a Saint for a long time.”

Thomas, 26, is set to make just $1.15 million this season under his current deal.
