NFL Free Agency 2013: Saints "Very Interested" in LB Paul Kruger

One of the premier pass rushers available in free agency this year will command a bidding war, and the Saints may be one of the teams bidding.

The NFL free agency rumors are already starting to swirl around the Saints and free agency hasn't even started yet.

The Saints are "very interested" in Baltimore Ravens linebacker Paul Kruger, according to FoxSports senior writer Peter Schrager via Twitter.

It was originally reported by Aaron Wilson, of the Baltimore Sun, that the Colts and Browns would be getting into a bidding war over Kruger. But Schrager has now thrown the Saints into the mix

According to Wilson, an NFL source believes that Kruger will command a contract worth $10 million to $12 million annually. Unlike the Browns and Colts, that's a lot of dough for the cash-strapped Saints to be tossing around.

As one of the premiere pass rushers available this off-season, the Saints signing Kruger would be an absolutely huge move. I'm all for it if they Saints can afford it and not screw themselves financially for the rest of the off-season. I'm just not sure he's really worth the money and not as good as advertised.
