Center Brian de la Puente signed his one-year, $1.323 million restricted free agent tender with the New Orleans Saints.
De la Puente has started 28 regular-season games and two postseason games since Jonathan Goodwin left the Saints as a free agent and signed with the San Francisco 49ers after the 2010 season.
De la Puente joined the Saints when he signed with the team's practice squad in 2010. He originally signed with the 49ers as an undrafted rookie out of California in 2008, and has spent time with Kansas City, Seattle and Carolina.
