Saints, Zach Strief 'moving' toward deal
By Mike Triplett
Chances appear high that the New Orleans Saints could re-sign right tackle Zach Strief. His agent Ralph Cindrich said Friday that he’s continued to talk with the Saints among other teams, and it “looks like we’re moving” toward a possible deal. Nothing, however, has been finalized.
There were reports out of Miami that the Dolphins wanted Strief to come for a visit, but Strief declined. Cindrich responded only that no visit has ever been scheduled with the Dolphins or any other team. Strief was back in his hometown of Cincinnati for a charity event this week.
There have been no recent updates available on any of the Saints’ other unsigned free agents -- including center Brian De La Puente, fullback Jed Collins, receivers Robert Meachem and Joe Morgan, and linebacker Parys Haralson.
There also haven’t been any developments with Seattle Seahawks cornerback Brandon Browner. ESPN’s John Clayton and Adam Schefter both reported that Browner will likely visit with the Saints. He also visited with the New England Patriots and has been talking with the Oakland Raiders, as well.
