NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) - The Saints have signed special teams ace and reserve cornerback Justin Hardee to a one-year deal, a league source tells FOX 8 sports. Hardee was fourth on the team in special teams snaps played in 2018.
Hardee entered the league as an undrafted free agent wide receiver with the Houston Texans but converted to cornerback when he signed with the Saints. In 2018, Hardee finished the season with one interception. He was an exclusive rights free agent meaning the Saints were the only team he could negotiate with. Financial terms of the contract were not disclosed.
