Lofton to visit this weekend

Saints schedule weekend visit with Curtis Lofton | ProFootballTalk

Mike Triplett of the New Orleans Times-Picayune reports that the Saints have scheduled a weekend free agent visit with linebacker Curtis Lofton.

We mentioned the Saints’ interest in Lofton previously. His signing would almost certainly seal Jonathan Vilma’s fate with the franchise.

New Orleans doesn’t have much salary cap space, but it could create enough room to sign Lofton by releasing Vilma. The move would also upgrade a leaky run defense.

Adam Caplan reports that the Saints are showing interest in free agent outside linebacker Chris Chamberlain, formerly of the Rams. Free agent inside linebackers Joe Mays and David Hawthorne have been on New Orleans’ radar, as well.

I'm no one.
Who are you?

Not even close, they still have cap room remaining, and they desperately need upgrades in their LB corps.

They sent him an offer, but he's visiting with us first. I say we hold him hostage until he signs like the Bills did with Mario!!!!

If it's money he is after; no way we can compete with what the Bucs are willing to spend on him.

Now if he wants to win, that's another story...

One dimensional player in my mind.

Liability vs the pass.

May be a good fit in Spags scheme however. What do you guys think
