Short contract,offering experience and can help Jordan and Hicks.
With out limited cap room, I'd argue youth sign players entering their prime; someone like Rickey Jackson could always be signed as a "consultant" and provide experience and guidance - besides at some point the defensive assistants have to develop talent.

If the New Orleans Saints wanted to chat with freshly released Minnesota Vikings cornerback Antoine Winfield, the veteran defensive back would be interested, according to Winfield's agent Ashanti Webb.
"Could be a good fit," Webb said.
Winfield tallied 100 total tackles last season, along with three interceptions and 12 pass defenses. Winfield, 35, would be a Darren Sharper-type signing as Winfield just wrapped up his 14th year in the NFL and the Vikings released him as he was due $7.25 million in 2013.

"Two receivers to the left, Garcon to the right. Manning in the shotgun, puts Collie in motion. Looks in his direction...it's picked off! It's picked off! It's Tracy Porter again! He's runnin' free! He's gonna go all the way!

Re: 2013 Saints - Free Agency Targets

Winfield is probably the best tackling CB out there and I've loved watching him play for the Vikes all of these past years, but he has seen his lot of injuries during the past couple of seasons and he hasn't been able to bounce back from them as fast as he once did.

Still, at a bargain rate he would definitely bring a much needed attitude to the secondary with his superior tackling skills and determination.

Re: 2013 Saints - Free Agency Targets

if he can SOLIDLY tackle, he surely won't be signed. our defense is built purely on the "dive at the shoelaces and hope" ... c'mon man, whatcha thinkin' there?

We need to sign younger, upcoming cornerbacks and not retreads...

Granted, he was amazing the past few years, but I doubt he's got anything left in the tank...

I'd rather sign more natural safeties and move Jenkins to cornerback opposite Greer...

Re: 2013 Saints - Free Agency Targets

Not sure how good he is,but is he worth trading for?
Low cost,if he plays well get him a long term deal,if not he leaves and we go after a top LT in next years draft.



Report: Saffold “likely” to ask for trade if Rams sign Jake Long
Posted by Josh Alper on March 13, 2013, 1:29 PM EDT
Billy Bajema, Rodger Saffold AP

If the Rams sign tackle Jake Long on Wednesday, it will take one left tackle off the market.

It might also lead to another one coming back onto the market. Bob Glauber of Newsday reports that current Rams left tackle Rodger Saffold would “likely” ask for a trade if the Rams and Long come to an agreement.

Saffold’s rationale is easy to understand. He’s set to become a free agent after next season and left tackles are generally paid more handsomely than their offensive line brethren. Whether Saffold was moved to right tackle or guard, something that was bandied about last season, he’d lose a potential chance to cash in as a free agent.

But there’s a reason why the Rams are in the market for Long’s services and it isn’t that Saffold was so great at left tackle that the Rams couldn’t pass on a chance to see how he played other positions. Without other moves, it would also be hard to see them deciding to trade Saffold without an overwhelmingly tempting return.

He’s making $880,000 in 2013 and the Rams would be a better overall line with Long at left tackle and Saffold at another post on the line. Saffold could make things difficult, but he has very little leverage to force a trade.
