The Saints made it pretty clear that they weren't going to stop at the signing of Keenan Lewis to upgrade their corners. The run they made at both Nnamdi Asomugha and Tracy Porter suggests another veteran corner was and is still in their plans.

The 2013 NFL off-season has been a notable one thus far in regard to moves in both free agency and in trades. No question, we’ve seen our fair share of surprises.
