Luke McCown and the Saints have agreed to a one-year contract, securing the quarterback’s spot on the roster to backup Drew Brees at least one more season.

McCown’s agent Mike McCartney tweeted the  move Wednesday morning. The Saints confirmed the move shortly after.

New Orleans had only Brees and Ryan Griffin on the roster this offseason and was in need of an experienced backup.

McCown spent 2013 with New Orleans. He recorded only one pass attempt.
