NEW ORLEANS (AP) -- The New Orleans Saints have signed former Minnesota tight end Andrew Glover and expect to finalize their deal with linebacker Charlie Clemons because St. Louis won't match the Saints' offer.
Glover, a nine-year veteran, was released by the Vikings after last season in a cost-cutting move. He was expected to arrive in New Orleans on Saturday.
Clemons, a restricted free agent, signed an offer sheet from the Saints on Wednesday. The Rams had seven days to match the offer but have indicated they will not, Saints spokesman Greg Bensel said Friday.
Glover played in all 16 regular season games for the Vikings in 1999, catching 28 passes for 327 yards and a touchdown.
