The New Orleans Saints have agreed to sign edge rusher Alex Okafor as a veteran option at defensive end, according to a report by NFL reporter Rand Getlin.

Okafor, a 6-foot-4, 261-pounder, has spent the first four seasons of his career in Arizona, hitting a high-water mark when he made eight sacks for the Cardinals in 2014.

New Orleans brought in Okafor for a visit on Monday and made sure he didn't take another visit.
