Several sources are reporting that Tampa Bay Buccaneers free agent cornerback Elbert Mack will visit the New Orleans Saints this week.
Mack was an undrafted free agent signed by the Buccaneers in 2008. He played his college career at Butler County Community College before transferring to Troy.
Saints fans shouldn’t get to hyped up about Mack being a force though. He is mainly a backup player at the corner position and has only registered 89 tackles and five interceptions.
Two of those interceptions did come last year. One was against Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers and the other against Atlanta Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan.
The Saints missed out on an opportunity to snag free agent cornerbacks Marcus Trufant who re-signed with the Seattle Seahawks and Kelvin Hayden who signed with the Chicago Bears.
The Saints are down to just a few options and their own free agent cornerback pool just suffered a loss. Cornerback Leigh Torrence signed with the Washington Redskins today knocking the Saints down a number.
