The New Orleans Saints made several more moves Thursday night.

They agreed to terms to keep linebacker Scott Shanle. Adam Schefter reported the two-year deal is worth $4 million. James Varney reports the Saints also agreed to terms with linebacker Danny Clark and released cornerback Randall Gay.

Keeping Shanle, a starter at one outside spot last season, and Clark, a backup-and special-teams player, helps solidify the linebacker corps. Linebacker Jo-Lonn Dunbar also agreed to return earlier Thursday.

Releasing Gay is hardly a surprise. The Saints have Jabari Greer and Tracy Porter as their starters and second-year pro Patrick Robinson figures to be the nickel back. Gay was scheduled to count $5 million against the salary cap. The Saints freed up $4 million by releasing him.
