New Orleans, LA (SportsNetwork.com) – The New Orleans Saints announced
Thursday that the team has reached agreements on one-year contracts with
outside linebacker Parys Haralson and kicker Shayne Graham.
Both players were slated to be unrestricted free agents in March.

Graham made good on 19-of-22 field goal attempts and went 46-of-47 on point-
