The Saints and CB Jabari Greer have agreed to 3-year contract extension worth more than $23 million. Greer has played with the Saints since 2009, and played with the Bills from 2004-2008. He has only 9 career interceptions, but does have 43 pass-breakups in the past three seasons.

 

It appears no team signed restricted free-agent WR Mike Wallace to an offer sheet, meaning he’ll return to the Steelers for at least one more season.

 

Free agents running-backs Ryan Grant and Tim Hightower are visiting the Patriots today. This is a bit of a stunner, as it appeared the team was happy with its RB situation after they let Benjarvus Green Ellis walk in free agency. Both Grant and Hightower have played at a high level at times, but Grant appears to be worn down after being injury plagued the last few seasons inGreen Bay. Hightower was a solid player for the Cardinals, but after they spent a first-rounder on Beanie Wells, the team felt inclined to give Wells more opportunities to succeed.

Hightower singed with the Redskins this past season, but tore his ACL in week 7 and now is looking for another team to sign with. Even though he’s is coming off the knee injury, he turns only 26 next month, so he should still have plenty left in the tank.
