New Orleans Saints Re-Sign Defensive Tackle

The New Orleans Saints have re-signed defensive tackle Malcolm Roach to a one-year contract, according to Nick Underhill of NewOrleans.Football.

Roach has been with the team since being drafted in 2020, and has played in a total of 29 games over the past three seasons, with five of those games being starts.

In 2022, Roach appeared in 13 games and recorded 26 total tackles and one sack. Despite averaging under 39% of the team's defensive snaps during his time with the Saints, he has proven to be a reliable depth option in the interior defensive line.

With his return to the team, Roach is expected to continue serving in that role for the upcoming season.

Entering his fourth NFL season, the 24-year has amassed 52 total tackles, one sack, one interception and one pass defended across 29 games played. Photo Credit: Eric Hartline-USA TODAY Sports
