The Saints aren’t allowed to sign unrestricted free agents currently because of the rules governing the uncapped year, but they do need help at linebacker.
That’s why they must have been happy when the Jaguars withdrew their tender to restricted free agent Clint Ingram, making him available. (League rules allow them to sign a non-tendered RFA.)
Ingram visited New Orleans Wednesday, and knows Gregg Williams’ defense from Williams’ year in Jacksonville.
The Saints didn’t draft a linebacker, and lost Scott Fujita in the offseason.
