Report: Hargrove to sign tender

Bradley Handwerger of WWLTV.com in New Orleans has reported some news that should bring a sigh of relief to Saints fans. Defensive lineman Anthony Hargrove is expected to sign his tender as a restricted free agent today.

There had been some nervous moments for New Orleans fans because Hargrove was courted by the Detroit Lions. They never made an offer to Hargrove, who played a crucial role in New Orleans’ run to the Super Bowl championship.

Hargrove can play defensive tackle and defensive end, and he used last season to resurrect his career. Good move by Hargrove to recognize he’s got a good thing going in New Orleans. He has a chance to play an even bigger role with the Saints in the upcoming season, and that could lead to a long-term contract down the road.
