METAIRIE, La. ― The Saints have re-signed defensive tackle Kendrick Clancy with one week of preseason left before beginning their campaign to defend the Lombardi Trophy.

Clancy was with the team in 2009, but missed most of the season after going on injured reserve with a knee injury. Reports say he has recovered from the injury.

He signed a one-year contract.

The move could spell doom for rookie Al Woods and third-year veteran DeMario Pressley. Both have been given opportunities in practice and the first three preseason games to make an impression in their ability to clog up the middle.
