New Orleans Saints Meeting With Two Standout Free Agent Players

The New Orleans Saints are actively exploring options to strengthen their roster, with both free-agent linebacker Anthony Barr and running back Kareem Hunt on their radar.

Barr, a former ninth overall pick in the 2014 NFL draft, showcased his talent during a brief stint with the Dallas Cowboys last season, contributing 58 tackles, one sack, four QB hits, and two fumble recoveries in 14 games played.

Despite previous success and four Pro Bowl selections with the Minnesota Vikings, injuries have limited Barr's playing time in recent years, making him a potential depth option for the linebacker position.

Similarly, Hunt, a free-agent running back, has caught the Saints' attention as they seek to bolster their running back situation amidst Alvin Kamara's suspension and Eno Benjamin's injury.

The team's interest in Hunt marks a positive development for the 28-year-old's career prospects, as he looks to find a new team after his contract with the Cleveland Browns expired.

The Saints' evaluation of both Barr and Hunt could have significant implications for their respective positions.

Barr's experience and skill set offer valuable support to the team's defense, while Hunt's dynamic abilities could add depth to their running back rotation.

As the team proceeds with workout sessions and assessments, official announcements from the Saints will provide further insights into their plans and intentions. Photo Credit:  Ken Blaze-USA TODAY Sports
