Saints continue to court d-linemen, will meet with Wilkerson

Unrestricted free agent defensive end Jimmy Wilkerson will visit with the New Orleans Saints next week, according to a league source.
Wilkerson was having a career year for Tampa Bay and on his way to a nice free-agent payday, but then suffered a season-ending knee injury in the penultimate game of the season.
He is recovering ahead of schedule and will make his first visit next week with the defending Super Bowl champions. Wilkerson has been negotiating with the Buccaneers as well about remaining there. New Orleans signed end Alex Brown earlier this week, but remains in the market for defensive linemen.

Can never have too much depth at this position, heading into the draft im feeling pretty confident with the front four

"Ryan......INTERCEPTED....going back the other way with Jabari Greer......TOUCHDOWN....KILLER TOUCHDOWN for the saints!!!"

+ 1 on the depth, and if we shore up our Run "D" we're gonna be scary next season.

How's the knee and how much does he want?

He could probably be had on the cheap. Provided his knee is healthy, I wouldn't see him getting more money than the Saints gave Alex Brown. If his knee is fine, I'd take him. Then the concentration would definitely be off of DE probably for the entire draft. That would give the Saints six total if you count Hargrove.

solid depth.....not much more

like the clip says he was having a career year but would still only be a backup for us

good to see us trying to address DE in free agency because it leaves us with a lot more options on draft day

That looks like the plan.
