Saints Moves

METAIRIE, La. (AP) -Saints restricted free agents David Thomas and Remi Ayodele are returning to the New Orleans Saints.

Their agent, Jordan Woy, says both players planned to re-sign this week.

Saints general manager Mickey Loomis says Thomas was signing his tender offer Tuesday. The Saints had offered Thomas about $1.18 million and Ayodele about $1.1 million.

Thomas is a tight end who was acquired in a trade with New England before the 2009 season. He caught 35 passes for 356 yards and a touchdown during the regular season and had four receptions for 41 yards in the playoffs.

Ayodele started 13 regular-season games and two playoff games. He had 1.5 sacks and recovered a fumble for a touchdown.
