According to NFL Insider Rand Getlin, the New Orleans Saints are bringing in veteran cornerback Cortland Finnegan for a visit. He's expected to sign.

This isn’t exactly encouraging news for the future of Keenan Lewis, but we will see. Outside of Lewis, the most tenured cornerback the Saints had was Brian Dixon, who enters his 3rd season.

UPDATE

As of 5:15PM CST, the team has signed Finnegan, according to multiple reports.

Finnegan appeared in 213 snaps for the Carolina Panthers defense in 5 games played during the regular season.
