Found February 28, 2012 on The Saints Nation:
The Saints have re-signed wide receiver Adrian Arrington for a 1 year contract worth $540,000 to remain with the team. No surprise here, Arrington was an exclusive rights free agent and couldn't go anywhere else even if he wanted to.

That means Arrington may get his best shot yet to get a real shot at substantial playing time. Welcome back #87, looking forward to seeing you compete in training camp for a roster spot again in 2012.
