NEW ORLEANS - New Orleans Saints general manager Mickey Loomis says the club has agreed to terms on a four-year contract with sixth-round draft choice Andrew Tiller, an offensive guard out of Syracuse.

The 6-foot-5, 334-pound Tiller started 28 games at for the Orange, playing under head coach Doug Marrone, a former Saints offensive line coach. As a senior last season, Tiller started all 12 games and was an All-Big East first-team selection.

Tiller became a starter in 2010 and blocked for a 1,000-yard rusher the past two seasons. Financial terms were not released for Tiller's deal, which left fourth-round pick Nick Toon, a receiver out of Wisconsin, as the only Saints 2012 draft pick without a contract agreement in place.
