Saints Nation: Lance Moore and Jahri Evans officially locked up for 2009

The Saints have now officially signed Jahri Evans and Lance Moore to their restricted free agent 1 year contract tenders. While this is good news, it is also expected news. The Saints were at a very low risk with Evans as they tendered him the highest possible amount (an amount that would yield a 1st and 3rd round pick in return should another team sign him and the Saints refuse to match). Lance Moore was a little more risky of a tender (only yielding one 2nd round pick in return if the Saints did not match another team's offer sheet), but it ended up saving the Saints a little cash. Welcome back, guys!
