METAIRIE, La. (AP) -- New Orleans Saints general manager Mickey Loomis says the club has agreed to the terms of a one-year contract with quarterback Luke McCown, who was Drew Brees' backup last season, as well as the holder on field goals.

McCown, whose re-signing was announced on Wednesday, is entering his 11th NFL season out of Louisiana Tech.

McCown has played in 38 regular season games in his career, including nine starts, and has completed 184 of 317 passes for 2,035 yards, nine touchdowns and 14 interceptions.

He began his career with the Cleveland Browns in 2004 and also played for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Jacksonville Jaguars and Atlanta Falcons.

Last season, his only meaningful snaps were on the field goal unit. He threw only one pass, an incompletion.
