Colts claimed DT DeMario Pressley off waivers from the Texans.

Pressley played a key reserve role for the Saints in the second half of the 2009 season, but he failed to suit up for a single game in 2010. As a three-technique tackle, Pressley is a better fit in the Colts' 4-3 scheme. He's no lock to make the roster in 2011.

Texans waived DT DeMario Pressley.

Pressley is a low-end three-technique prospect for 4-3 teams, so he never had a shot to stick when Houston switched to a 3-4. The 25-year-old may draw a bit of interest on waivers from teams desperate for an interior pass rusher.

Saints rookie DT DeMario Pressley fractured his foot on the third day of training camp. He was placed on injured reserve, ending his season.

Pressley was already in a fight for a roster spot and wasn't being counted on for a major role. The fifth-round pick will get another chance in 2009.

Saints agreed to terms with fifth-round DT DeMario Pressley on a three-year contract.'s Adam Caplan reports the deal includes a signing bonus of nearly $139,000.

The latest in a deep reservoir of talented NC State defensive line alums, Pressley is being tried as a three technique by the Saints. He had only 1.5 sacks and eight QB pressures as a senior. Pressley looks to be in direct competition with veteran Antwan Lake to be New Orleans' fifth interior tackle.
