While Darren Sproles is one huge free agent signing for the New Orleans Saints; that really is about the only free agent signing that the team has had at all so far this offseason. Well, until now. Bradenton.com is reporting that the Saints have come to terms with cornerback Fabian Washington.
He is expected to sign today.
Washington is a seven-year NFL veteran who played with the Baltimore Ravens last season. A source says that Washington is expected to sign a deal worth more than $2 million with the Saints.
The 28-year-old cornerback had 31 tackles for the Ravens last season, primarily as a back-up. With the number of injuries the Saints suffered in the secondary last season, it comes as no surprise that they are trying to have a very valid back-up unit for 2011.
