Did The Saints Try To Acquire A Cornerback?
Did the New Orleans Saints try to acquire a cornerback prior to the 3 pm (CDT) NFL trade deadline on Tuesday?
ESPN's Ed Werder thinks so.
Werder says the Saints "made a play" for Cleveland Browns cornerback Joe Haden, but that the asking price was too high.
The have been short-handed in the secondary, as starting cornerback Delvin Breaux has been out since opening week with a broken leg, and the other starting cornerback P.J. Williams, has been on injured reserve since week two.
To makes matters worse, cornerback Sterling Moore missed last week's game against the Seattle Seahawks with an abdomen injury.
Haden, the seventh overall pick of the 2010 NFL Draft, is a two-time Pro Bowler, in his seventh season with the Browns.
This Sunday, the Saints are on the road to face the San Francisco 49ers.
