Saints add CB Elbert Mack, waive DT Mitch King

Associated Press Published: June 5, 2012

METAIRIE, La. (AP) — The New Orleans Saints and veteran cornerback Elbert Mack have agreed to a one-year contract.

General manager Mickey Loomis, who announced the acquisition of Mack on Tuesday when the Saints opened minicamp, says the club also has waived defensive tackle Mitch King.

The 5-foot-10, 175-pound Mack, who was a free agent, has spent his first four NFL seasons with Tampa Bay. He has five career interceptions and 77 tackles in 58 games and also has been a special teams regular.

Mack, who turned pro as an undrafted rookie out of Troy, appeared in all 16 games with one start for the Buccaneers last season, getting much of his work in five- and six-defensive back formations.

He intercepted two passes in 2011, returning one for a touchdown.
