Still it wouldn’t hurt the Saints to look at Florence based on his play and also his experience. The Saints have had a few free agent cornerbacks in for workouts but haven’t signed any yet.
2012 fifth round pick Corey White will also be added to the secondary as a cornerback, but it’s unlikely he’ll get a start at the position unless he just has a phenomenal training camp.
The market for cornerbacks is very slim right now. In fact much like for defensive ends, which the Saints could also use, it’s almost non-existent.
The Saints had brought in Tampa Bay Buccaneers free agent cornerback Elbert Mack for a workout, but didn’t sign him. Mack is about only a few meager prospects left in the cornerback free agency.
This is why if the Saints are serious about bringing in a cornerback for a low base salary, then Florence is their best candidate and should get him before another team does.
