AP reports the Saints are optimistic that they will add free-agent WR Az-Zahir Hakim to the roster after the veteran's deal with the Kansas City Chiefs fell through Friday. The Saints made a contract offer to the seven-year veteran before he agreed to terms with the Chiefs last week. Apparently, Hakim and the Chiefs could not come together on money and playing-time guarantees and decided to part ways. "Az and his agent got together, and they really felt his best situation was not here for him," said Chiefs HC Dick Vermeil, who said the Saints were offering more money and that the Chiefs could not guarantee a roster spot. "I told you all along that I wanted what was best for him, and I think he's going to end up in New Orleans." Details of the Saints' offer are unknown. Hakim's agent, Bruce Tollner, could not be reached for comment. The Saints sent a contract offer to Hakim by overnight Friday, but haven't officially reached an agreement. "I don't have anything confirmed yet, but we'd love to have him," Saints GM Mickey Loomis said.

So I guess he's not quite a Saint yet.

No just that he was heading to NO. No contracts have been signed so he could still end up anywheres... keep in mind that this could be a negociation tactic Hakim and his agent is using to insure roster spot but seems to be more about money and number of years, from what I am hearing... so ya drop another teams name who might pay more and give him what he wants in hopes another team offers more.

I agree that Henderson maybe on the crappo list for coach and that he may not see the field very much this year either.

people are expecting to much from him to early... give him another year or two. It takes time for a WR to develop.

I agree E but I think it may take Henderson longer than Stallworth and he is not even all he can be yet.

Kick to Hakim, he fumbles, Lewis picks up the ball and circles back around to the outside for the score. It's all a plan of diversion, just like the fumble by Stecker last year that he picked up and took to the heaz.
