Hall, Delhomme Draw No Offers

Saints restricted free agents Jake Delhomme and Lamont Hall drew no offers before the Monday deadline. Teams could sign other teams' restricted free agents to offer sheets before Monday.

Earlier this season the Saints' signed Jacksonville cornerback Jason Craft to an offer sheet. Under CBA rules the original team has seven days to match or beat the offer. The Jaguars chose to match the Saints' offer and Craft remains today with the Jaguars.

Delhomme and Hall both signed minimum tender offers of $563,000. While neither have officially signed their tenders they are expected to later this offseason.

Another Saints restricted free agent, DL Willie Whitehead, signed his tender and is officially under contract for one more year.

Hall, Delhomme and Whitehead will be unrestricted free agents after this upcoming season.
