Report: Saints sign edge rusher Alex Okafor

NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) - The New Orleans Saints continue their offseason focus on beefing up their defense.

The Saints agreed to terms with edge pass rusher Alex Okafor, according to our partners at NOLA.com | The Times-Picayune.

Rand Getlin first reported the signing.

Okafor spent the first four years of his career in Arizona. His best season was 2014 when he finished with eight sacks.

The Saints have placed a premium on getting a better pass rush this offseason. Okafor should help in that regard.
