The New Orleans Saints retained some depth on their offensive line by agreeing to terms with Bryce on a one-year contract.

Harris entered the offseason as a restricted free agent but the Saints declined the option to offer him a tender, which would have allowed New Orleans to match any offers the offensive lineman received from other teams.

Harris served as depth on the offensive line last season, filling in at tackle. He logged 393 snaps last season and allowed 19 hurries and seven quarterback hits, according to Pro Football Focus.

The deal was first reported by the Baltimore Sun.
