The New Orleans Saints have a little bit more going on other than the first preseason game and injury notes to pay attention to. Free agency is still going strong and the the Saints lost another one over the weekend as linebacker Marvin Mitchell has signed with the Miami Dolphins. For those also wondering about the status of safety Darren Sharper, he will be visiting the New England Patriots this week.

Mitchell served mostly as a back-up in the linebacking corps and it is increidbly overcrowded this season already. He was a big-time special teams player for the Saints, but again the roster is huge right now and many guys are stepping up.

News of the signing with the Dolphins came via Scout.com.

For those that have been wondering about Sharper's status, he has not re-signed with New Orleans no matter what some reports may read. The Saints did not come to a deal with the longtime veteran which allowed him to stay a free agent. With the depth the Saints have in the secondary, this came as no surprise.

Sharper will visit with the Patriots sometime during the week in hope of securing a job for at least one more year in his long and great career. He is coming off microfracture knee surgery in 2010 which limited his playing time to only half the games in last season.

In all reality, signing with the Pats gives him as much chance for a ring as signing with the Saints does.
