Alex Brown to visit Saints tuesday

Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune reports a league source said DE Alex Brown will visit the Saints on Tuesday and more trips could be in the works for him.

The Saints are seeking a defensive end after releasing former first-round draft pick Charles Grant. They were reported to be interested in James Hall and Leonard Little earlier in the offseason. Hall re-signed with the St. Louis Rams.

The Carolina Panthers and Tampa Bay Buccaneers are also believed to have interest in Brown. The Bucs use the same defensive scheme and had hoped to sign Aaron Kampman in free agency. The Panthers are going to try to replace the richest new Bear, Julius Peppers, by committee and Brown could be a big part of that committee if he heads there.

Re: Alex Brown to visit Saints tuesday

It would make sense to sign him that way other teams will have to second guess which way we geaux in the draft...

I would have thought linebacker after the Jabari Greer signing and we still took the OSU kid...
