Report: Hargrove to sign Saints tender

Many of you have been asking about Detroit’s status with defensive lineman Anthony Hargrove, a restricted free agent who took a visit to the Lions’ practice facility last month.

Here’s the latest: Hargrove is expected to sign his tender Monday, according to WWL in New Orleans via NFL.com. That means he will be under contract with the Saints and unable to sign an offer sheet with the Lions.

But the move wouldn’t rule out a trade between the two teams. I don’t think New Orleans is eager to deal Hargrove, who played an important role in its Super Bowl season. But we’ll keep an eye on it regardless.
