Evening roundup

3/2/2009

Posted by ESPN.com's Pat Yasinskas

Time for a quick roundup of some of the notes we didn't have a chance to get to earlier today:

Veteran cornerback Shawn Springs reportedly will pay a visit to the Saints. After losing out on Ron Bartell, who re-signed with the Rams on Monday, Springs could make a lot of sense. He spent some time in Washington with New Orleans defensive coordinator Gregg Williams.

The Falcons have been conspicuously quiet in free agency so far. But they do have a visit set up with defensive end Mike Montgomery. He's not the kind of guy that's going to come in and post double-digit sacks, but he could provide some needed depth.

Although the Bucs still have some interest in re-signing him, cornerback Phillip Buchanon has scheduled a visit with the Detroit Lions. The Bucs are covering their bases and are looking at Buffalo's Jabari Greer.

Things remain very quiet on the Carolina front, but at least the Panthers are planning on hitting some college workouts soon.
