Report: DT Kendall Langford Scheduled to Visit New Orleans Saints


According to ESPN NFL Nation reporter Nick Wagoner, who covers the St. Louis Rams, defensive tackle Kendall Langford will be meeting with the New Orleans Saints while on tour visiting several teams.

He spent the last three seasons in St. Louis as a plug up the middle stopping ball carriers, totaling 101 combined tackles and eight sacks.  Langford, who hasn’t missed a single game in his seven-year career, was initially drafted by the Miami Dolphins in the third round of the 2008 NFL Draft.

Kendall Langord has tallied 242 combined tackles, 15.5 sacks and four forced fumbles since taking his talents to the National Football League.  The Hampton University product was a freshman All-American in 2004 and three-time first-team All-MEAC selection (2005-07).  He was also named to the Pro Football Weekly All-Rookie Team in 2008 after a solid start with Miami.

Defensive tackle Brodrick Bunkley has just not lived up to the hype since arriving in the Big Easy as a free agent, missing ten games and totaling just 53 tackles and 2.5 sacks.  Langford could be a major upgrade, however, the evolving John Jenkins should still not be counted out.

With free agency getting ready to kick off, the next few weeks are going to be pretty hectic in the NFL, so be sure to stay tuned for any big news regarding your New Orleans Saints.  The free agent market opens up March 10.
