Kristian: Butler catches up with Rob Ryan, ''Nnamdi Watch'' continues
With free agent LB Victor Butler visiting the Saints, I think the chances are very strong he doesn't leave New Orleans Friday without a deal in place. Butler has made a handful of visits to other teams and not worked out a deal, because he wants to be with the Saints if the money is right.
Butler studied for two seasons under Rob Ryan when the two were in Dallas. OLB is an area of need for the Saints, and Butler also brings some pass rush ability to the Saints defense. He's a bit unproven in four years in the league, but is at the perfect age of 25 with seemingly his best football in front of him.
Asomugha Nnamdi: This is such a difficult one to call. Nnamdi is owed $4 million by the Eagles as a part of the five year deal he signed 2 years ago. The 49ers and Saints are in the hunt for the veteran corner back and the difference could be Rob Ryan. This is clearly a case of Asomugha trying to find the right fit. Stay tuned.
Herring: Linebacker Will Herring has reportedly agreed to re-sign with the Saints for a one-year contract. It's more of a depth move that's low-risk for the team. I think he's questionable to make the team...He'll have to earn it.
