Thursday free agent notes

  • Free agent QB Jake Delhomme will be visiting the Saints. He's familiar with New Orleans, not only from growing up in Breaux Bridge, playing college ball in Lafayette, playing pro ball for the Saints through 2002, and then whipping the Saints eight times out of eleven as a Panther.

  • The Saints have re-signed LS Jason Kyle to a one-year contract. Kyle performed well as the Saints' long snapper in 2009, signing him after Seattle cut him, in what became a long snapper swap. The Seahawks signed LS Kevin Houser last year after the Saints cut him because of some internal locker room strife, which has resulted in a lawsuit.

  • Ex-Lion and ex-Ram, 33-year old DE James Hall, a St. Augustine High School product, is the Saints' first outside free agent visit.

  • Various online reports indicate that free agent RB LaDainian Tomlinson may visit New Orleans, assuming he doesn't sign with Minnesota or the Jets in coming days. Hard to imagine a Pierre Thomas-Reggie Bush-Lynell Hamilton-LaDainian Tomlinson backfield.

  • Former Saint draft pick guard Andy Alleman has signed with the Colts.

  • Former Saint draft pick cornerback Michael Hawthorne, is showing the reborn Arena Football League's Orlando Storm a glimpse of da speed.
