CNNSI reported on Thursday that the New Orleans Saints have signed linebacker Bryan Cox to a one-year contract.
Terms of the deal have not been disclosed.
Cox began the year as a defensive captain for the Patriots last season, but after suffering a broken right leg back on October 28, 2001 in a loss against Denver Cox missed time and eventually fell out of the starting line-up. He rehabilitated the injury and returned a mere five weeks later against the New York Jets, but saw limited action for the remainder of the season.
The 34-year old three-time Pro Bowl selection has been in the league for 12 seasons, and as the season wound down there was a lot of speculation of whether or not he would return next season. He has reportedly drawn interest for a possible career in the broadcast booth, but for now it appears the veteran linebacker will see if he can make an impact with one last team before he calls it quits.
