    Bartell left Saints without offer (Saints still talking)

    New Orleans Saints still in talks with free agent cornerback Ron Bartell, free agent safety Gerald Sensabaugh

    Free agent cornerback Ron Bartell left town without an offer on Saturday, but he and the Saints are still showing mutual interest and an offer could be on the way Sunday, according to a league source. Bartell, 27, has not gone on any other visits yet, but he has reportedly been in ongoing contract talks with his former team, the St. Louis Rams.
    Meanwhile, free agent safety Gerald Sensabaugh arrived Saturday night, according to his agent Kevin Conner, so his visit will continue into today.

    Either player would give a much-needed boost to the Saints' embattled secondary. Both are young, up-and-coming playmakers with starting experience. The Saints have also scheduled a Monday visit with veteran safety Darren Sharper, according to a league source. So it's clear they plan on upgrading that unit.
    The Saints have also reportedly shown some interest in veteran cornerback Shawn Springs, who was released by the Washington Redskins. We've been unable to confirm that, but it makes a lot of sense, considering Springs has ties to both General Manager Mickey Loomis from their days in Seattle and defensive coordinator Gregg Williams from their days in Washington.
    Stay tuned for more updates throughout the weekend as they become available.

    CRAP! We need to resign Bartell. We made Brown the highest paid center. We have to have SOME kind of money laying around.

    That's just it, though. Now I'm not sure we have enough money for him and our inevitable no.2 draft pick contract.

    I read somewhere that Spags expects to have enough money to sign Brown, Butler, and Bartell. I can't remember which article it was though. Hopefully we can get him signed.
