The Saints agreed to one-year, $540,000 exclusive rights contracts with receiver Adrian Arrington and long-snapper Justin Drescher their agents said Tuesday, taking care of two of the easier offseason transactions they’ll have.

Additionally, the team and safety Jonathan Amaya agreed to terms.

Arrington caught two passes in the regular season for 31 yards and added two more receptions for 21 yards in the playoffs.

He was a seventh-round draft pick by New Orleans in 2008

Drescher, meanwhile, signed on with New Orleans late in 2010, earning a spot on the roster for the 2011 season.

Amaya came to New Orleans in the preseason 2011 trade that sent Reggie Bush to Miami. Amaya was a steadying presence on special teams this past season.

Exclusive rights free agents are players with less than three years accrued experience in the NFL; unlike restricted or unrestricted free agents, if a contract is offered by their original team, that's the only club those players can play for.
