Report: Saints bringing in Calvin Pryor for a visit

The Saints have loaded up the safety position in recent months.  They could be considering loading it up even more.

Per multiple reports, the Saints are bringing safety Calvin Pryor to New Orleans for a visit.

Workouts happen on campus; a visit means only that the Saints will be talking to Pryor in more extensive detail that they could at other times.

The Saints used a first-round pick last year on safety Kenny Vaccaro, signed safety Jairus Byrd to a big-money deal in free agency, and recently matched an offer sheet signed by safety Rafeal Bush with the Falcons.

A visit doesn’t mean the Saints would draft Pryor.  It could be a smokescreen, or an assessment of the player in the event an opportunity arises to trade down.

That’s why it’s so hard to know whether any of these visits mean anything.  Sometimes they do, a lot of times they don’t.

    This has to be a smokescreen unless the saints are running a new 5 safety look defense. lol

    I think we learned how important it is to have depth on defense . This might be just for looks but don’t be surprised if We pick another safety up

    Preparing to get out of Byrd’s contract in a year or two…already? Doesn’t surprise me.

    My God you people are stupid. Coming in for a visit does not mean they’re definitely going to draft him. Sheesh.

    This is what happens when you have soooo much time in between the combine and the draft, you bring anybody and everybody.

    Hey Vikings fans, Kenny Vaccaro was rated as a top five safety by Bleacher Report.

    I love your secondary though! Captain Munnerlyn! BWWWWAAAAHAHAHHAAHAAHAHAA!!!!!!

    They also signed a safety from the CFL a few weeks ago…

    Drafting Pryor allows Saints to get the BP and trade Bush to the Falcons for a fourth rounder or maybe even a third.
