Saints re-signed S Rafael Bush to a two-year, $4.5 million contract.
Bush was a restricted free agent. The offer was actually Atlanta's, but the Saints decided to match. Bush likely would have been a starter in Atlanta, but returns as the Saints' No. 3 safety behind Jairus Byrd and Kenny Vaccaro. Bush was solid in a similar role last season, making 42 tackles while excelling in coverage. He played 520 snaps. The Saints aren't resting on their laurels after Rob Ryan resuscitated a moribund defense in 2013.
