Defensive back Shemar Jean-Charles is back on the Saints’ roster.

Jean-Charles became a free agent last month and the Saints announced that they have re-signed him on Monday. It’s a one-year deal with no other terms disclosed.

The Saints signed Jean-Charles to their practice squad last November after he was waived by the 49ers. He appeared in three games for New Orleans before the end of the season and he made five appearances for the Niners earlier in the year.

Jean-Charles was a 2021 fifth-round pick of the Packers and he played 20 games over his first two seasons. He has 15 career tackles.

The Saints doubled down on new acquisitions on Friday.

Shortly after announcing their agreement with quarterback Kellen Mond on the terms of a contract, the team announced that they have also struck a deal with wide receiver Equanimeous St. Brown. The terms of the agreement were not included in the announcement.

St. Brown was a 2018 sixth-round pick in Green Bay and he spent the last two seasons with the Bears. He caught 21 passes while playing 16 games in 2022, but was limited to five catches in seven games last season. For his career, St. Brown has 63 catches for 928 yards and two touchdowns.

Chris Olave, Rashid Shaheed, Cedrick Wilson, A.T. Perry, and Stanley Morgan are the other wideouts on the roster in New Orleans.

When Kellen Mond worked out for the 49ers earlier this week, he mentioned being familiar with San Francisco’s offense because Klint Kubiak was his offensive coordinator in his rookie year with Minnesota.

As it turns out, Mond won’t be in the Bay Area to start the offseason program. But he will get reunited with Kubiak.

The Saints announced on Friday that they’ve agreed to terms with Mond.

A Vikings third-round pick in 2021, Mond was waived at the start of the regular season in 2022. The Browns claimed him and he spent that season with the club. After Cleveland let him go last August, he eventually signed with Indianapolis’ practice squad.

Mond has appeared in just one regular-season game, back in 2021. He completed 2-of-3 passes for 5 yards.

Mond joins a group of QBs that includes Derek Carr, Nathan Peterman, and Jake Haener. New Orleans also lists Taysom Hill as a quarterback.

The Saints have added some depth at linebacker.

New Orleans has agreed to terms with Khaleke Hudson on a one-year deal, according to NFL Media’s Mike Garafolo.

Hudson, 26, just completed his rookie contract with Washington. He was a significant special teams contributor playing 73 percent of the unit’s snaps in 2023. He also played 35 percent of defensive snaps for the Commanders last season.

Washington selected him in the fifth round of the 2020 draft. He appeared in 58 games with 12 starts, recording a pair of passes defensed, seven tackles for loss, five QB hits, and a sack.

The Eagles are bringing a member of their secondary back into the fold.

Cornerback Avonte Maddox has agreed to a one-year deal with Philadelphia, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

Maddox, 28, has dealt with multiple injuries over the last two seasons, playing a total of 13 games in that span. He suffered a pectoral injury early on in 2023 and was activated off injured reserve just before the postseason.

The Eagles selected Maddox in the fourth round of the 2018 draft and he has been with the organization ever since. Philadelphia released him last month and he took a free-agent visit with New Orleans. But now the Eagles have him back in the fold.

In 64 career games with 38 starts, Maddox has 31 passes defensed, four interceptions, eight forced fumbles, and 3.0 sacks.
