Saints Extend 2nd-Round Tender To C Brian De La Puente
After placing a second-round tender on running back Chris Ivory on Friday night, the New Orleans Saints have used a second-round tender on center Brian de la Puente today.
Undrafted in 2008, the former California lineman played for four teams in his first two seasons in the NFL. In 2010, De la Puente began his second stint with the 49ers, before joining the Seahawks for the second time.
Following his release by the Seahawks, De la Puente was signed to the Saints' practice squad in October 2010. De la Puente became the Saints' starting center in 2011 after Olin Kreutz suffered a knee injury and unexpectedly retired.

guess they are comfortable with him in the middle. don't really have anyone behind him. always seemed below average to me. he had Grubbs on one side and Evans on the other and couldn't really hold up. But of course they are too strapped to go after anyone via FA.
