The Saints have reportedly scheduled visits with two St. Louis Rams defensive ends, Leonard Little and James Hall. Little is expected to be in town today to meet with the team and Hall will be visiting sometime this week.
The Times-Pic also reported yesterday that former Carolina Panthers defensive tackle Ma'ake Kemoeatu might also be checking in for a look-see, possibly as a backup plan if Jamal Williams doesn't work out. Kemoeatu missed all of 2009 with a torn Achilles suffered during training camp. Since Williams signed with Denver yesterday, the Kemoeatu visit seems more likely now.
If the Saints really like either one of these guys, we could be hearing of a signing as early as today, though I don't foresee that happening.
So far the team has only defensive lineman on the unrestricted free agent docket of visits, and with the recent offer made to Jeff Charleston yesterday, we might surmise that the Saints are definitely going to draft a linebacker with their first round pick in this years draft.
After the jump I've compiled just some brief personal and statistical information (from 2009) on each of these players as well as their salary last year. All three of these players could easily be signed to a contract equal to or less than the one Scott Fujita inked with the Browns, as the new CBA rules dictate.
So what are you guys thinking?
