NEW ORLEANS - The New Orleans Saints and free agent fullback Erik Lorig have agreed to a four-year contract.

Financial terms of Lorig's contract were not disclosed

Lorig played defensive end at Stanford and was converted to fullback in his rookie season. He has played in 56 games, including 24 starts, lining up as a tight end at times and also playing on special teams.
