Saints lose out on Free Agent Safety Gerald Sensabaugh

Dallas reached an agreement with unrestricted free agent safety Gerald Sensabaugh Tuesday morning.  He was previously with the Jaguars, where he has been his entire four year career.

The deal is reportedly for one year, but the financials have not been disclosed.

Sensabaugh was the first free agent brought in by New Orleans in an effort to rebuild a struggling secondary. 

It seemed liked a natural fit for Sensabaugh who had his best season in 2008 under new Saints defensive coordinator Gregg Williams.

Sensabaugh notched 70 tackles, four interceptions and eight pass deflections under Williams tutledge at Jacksonville.

Safety is clearly one of the Saints pressing needs this offseason and with little cap space the team is hoping to ink an instant starter at a budget rate for Williams to develop.

The team has only brought in one other safety for a visit in perpetual pro bowler Darren Sharper. Sharper has spent the last four seasons with the Minnesota Vikings recording 18 interceptions during that span.

New Orleans interest in Sharper is very high and with Sensabaugh getting away it appears the Saints will ramp up their efforts to obtain his services for the 2009 season.

 

Should the Saints ramp up their efforts to sign Darren Sharper or go after a younger safety in the draft?
