The New Orleans Saints signed RT Victor Riley to a 2 year contract worth $2.7 million dollars. The second year of the contract is voidable, but only if Riley hits certain performance incentives. This is likely a one-year deal that will see Riley head elsewhere to get a bigger contract after the 2002 season.

The New Orleans Saints signed RT Victor Riley to a 2 year contract worth $2.7 million dollars. The second year of the contract is voidable, but only if Riley hits certain performance incentives. This is a likely a one-year deal that will see Riley head elsewhere to get a bigger contract after the 2002 season.

The former first round pick in the 1998 draft by Kansas City will have to miss the first game of the season because of suspension. The suspension was handed down after Riley violated the league's personal conduct policy.

In May of 2001, Riley was charged with felony counts of aggrivated assault, criminal damage to property, and misdemeanor counts of child endangerment and leaving the scene of an accident.

Riley also is coming off of a broken leg which he suffered in week 5 and didn't see action until the Chief's final game. He's a very talented player and has the size(6'5", 328) and strength the Saints are looking for to bolster there O-Line.

This signing comes a week after the Saints signed RT Spencer Folau from Miami. It looks like Folau will play RT for one game and then move to RG for the entire season. The Saints' offensive line will now look like this:

LT-Kyle Turley

LG-Wally Williams

C-Jerry Fontenot

RG-Spencer Folau

RT-Victor Riley
