(WVUE) - The Saints are re-signing Alex Okafor to a 2-year deal worth up $10 million according to FOX 8 Sports Sean Fazende. NFL Network's Ian Rapaport reported the news first.

The pass-rusher visited the Bucs, but working in Dennis Allen's defense appears to be a great fit for Okafor. Okafor joined the Saints on a one-year deal last year.

According to Fazende, the team has now addressed safety, cornerback, linebacker, and edge on defense during free agency.

Okafor is still recovering from a torn Achilles tendon suffered in November.  Okafor racked up 43 tackles, and 4.5 sacks in only 11 games of work.
