The New Orleans Saints have signed defensive tackle Ashaad Mabry to a reserve/future contract, according to a source.

Mabry, a rookie from UTSA who impressed in the preseason with 14 tackles and two tackles-for-loss, spent the entire season on the practice squad.

Now the rookie, part of an impressive undrafted defensive line class that produced starting defensive end Bobby Richardson and backups Tavaris Barnes and Kaleb Eulls, will get another chance to make the Saints’ 53-man roster.
