Offensive guard Jahri Evans and wide receiver Lance Moore, restricted free agents during the offseason, have signed one-year contracts with the Saints.
General manager Mickey Loomis made the announcement Friday.
Evans' contract is worth $2.79 million and Moore's is worth $1.55 million.
During the restricted free agency period, other teams could have offered more, but the Saints would have had the right to match the offer or receive draft picks as compensation.
Evans, a fourth-round draft pick in 2006, has started every game of his career.
Moore, with the Saints since 2005, spent much of his early career on the practice squad. But he emerged as the Saints' leading receiver in 2008, with 79 catches for 928 yards and 10 touchdowns.
