Justin Fargas is visiting with Saints [-Merge-]
 
1 Attachment(s)
NEW ORLEANS Ė Running back Justin Fargas could possibly be the Saints first offseason acquisition.

The eighth-year pro was in New Orleans on Tuesday night, eating dinner with Saints officials at Emerilís in the Warehouse District, a source confirmed to Eyewitness Sports.

The visit could be tied into whether the team decides to match the Philadelphia Eaglesí contract offer with Mike Bell, which was signed Tuesday. It was Bellís second visit this offseason after the Saints tendered the running back at the lowest possible compensation.

New Orleans has seven days to match the Eaglesí offer sheet.

In seven seasons with the Oakland Raiders, Fargas rushed for 3,369 yards and 10 touchdowns on 827 carries. He fumbled 10 times, losing only four.

But Fargas missed the final two games of the 2009 season with a knee injury and the Raiders cut ties with him this offseason, citing his inability to pass a physical.

Fargas, though, disputes that and he has taken visits with the Browns and Eagles so far during the free agency period.

Mike Bell has been signed to an offer sheet by the Philadelphia Eagles and the Saints have seven days to match it or let him go. That hasn't stopped them though from already looking for a possible replacement.

Former Oakland Raider running back Justin Fargas was seen on Tuesday night having dinner with Saints' officials. No official visit has been reported as of yet. Witnesses spotted them at Emeril's in the Warehouse District.

I actually like Fargas. He runs hard every play and behind one of the worst Olines in the NFL. He is slightly older Bell clone in my estimation.

I have always thought that Fargas would have been a superstar back if he wasn't stuck in the Oakland tar pit. This would be a great move if he is healthy.

This makes no sense. He is avg at best. No upgrade from bell and bell has been in the system.
