Saints agree to terms with Kikaha, Grayson, 4 other draftees

METAIRIE, La. (AP) The New Orleans Saints have agreed to contract terms with outside linebacker Hau'oli Kikaha, quarterback Garrett Grayson and four other players selected in this year's NFL draft.

The agreements, announced Monday by general manager Mickey Loomis, are all for four years.

Kikaha, an edge pass rusher who set career and single-season records for sacks at Washington, was the Saints' second-round pick. Grayson, who played at Colorado State, was a third-round choice.

The other four players who've agreed to terms include three fifth-round picks: Chattanooga outside linebacker Davis Tull, Fresno State defensive lineman Tyeler Davison and Georgia cornerback Damian Swann. Missouri running back and return specialist Marcus Murphy, a seventh-rounder, also has agreed to contract terms.

The Saints open a three-day rookie camp on Friday.
