The New Orleans Saints on Tuesday took care of in-house business ahead of the league's new calendar year, which begins March 14. The Saints re-signed long snapper Zach Wood to a one-year, $555,000 deal, according to a source familiar with the situation. "I'm very excited," Wood said Tuesday afternoon in a telephone interview. "This is where I want to be. I've grown to love this team and love the guys that I play with and I couldn't be more happy with where I am." Wood, who was scheduled to become an exclusive rights free agent, entered the league in 2016 as an undrafted free agent out of SMU with the Dallas Cowboys before joining the Saints on a one-year deal on Sept. 8, 2017. The 6-foot-3, 255-pound Wood, 25, went on to appear in all 16 regular-season games, totaling 151 snaps on special teams as a key member on one of the NFL's top kicking units with punter Thomas Morstead and kicker Wil Lutz. "I couldn't ask for a better group of guys to work with," Wood said. "Tom's been around for a long time, he's a mentor for me and he helped guide me through my rookie season and he's going to continue helping me because I'm just a young guy.
