Cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha and offensive lineman Bryant
McKinnie are on the New Orleans Saints radar, according to Larry Holder of
Holder notes that the Saints are in the market for a left
tackle after losing free agent Jermon Bushrod to the Chicago Bears. The Saints
currently have in-house candidate Charles Brown to fill the position, but head
coach Sean Payton has said he hopes to add someone to offer competition.
The Baltimore Ravens are known to have interest in retaining
McKinnie, who was a reserve for the team for much of last season. After serving
a reserve role throughout the regular season, injuries forced McKinnie into
action as a starter during the playoffs.
Asomugha has visited with the Saints, as they are one of
several teams – also including the San Francisco 49ers – that have expressed
interest in the cornerback. Holder reports that the Saints view the choice of
whether to come to New Orleans as Asomugha’s to make.
