The Saints are officially trying to fix their secondary problems.

Today, Saints general manager Mickey Loomis announced that the Black and Gold have signed safety Pierson Prioleau, just around a week after they signed safety Darren Sharper.

Prioleau is sure to be familiar with the Saints’ defensive scheme, as he played for current Saints defensive coordinator Gregg Williams on three other teams.

Prioleau has previously played with San Francisco, Buffalo, Washington, and Jacksonville, with the last three teams being where he played under Williams.

In his career, he has made 313 total tackles, 5.5 sacks, defended 15 passes, and one interception. He is in his 11th season out of Virginia Tech.
