Saints News, 3/4/15: Former Rams DT Kendall Langford to Visit Saints

New, comments

From Mike Triplett at ESPN.com: Langford, 29, is free to sign with teams now since he was released by the Rams last week. But it appears he’s planning to test the market first, since he has already visited the Detroit Lions and also plans to visit the New York Jets. Wagoner described Langford as a “solid and probably underrated player” over his past three years in St. Louis -- and for four years with the Miami Dolphins before that.
