Brian Poole agrees to deal with New Orleans
Mike Triplett of ESPN reports that free agent DB Brian Poole has agreed to a deal with the New Orleans Saints, pending physical.
Poole has played mainly as a slot cornerback with the Jets and Falcons, but fills a huge need for the Saints. New Orleans released veteran CB Janoris Jenkins this offseason to create cap space. They then used a third-round draft pick on Stanford CB Paulson Adebo in the 2021 NFL Draft. The Saints could also be without star CB Marshon Lattimore if suspended for his arrest and charge for allegedly receiving a stolen handgun. Poole gives the Saints both depth and more options, but regardless how he’s used his presence will be felt in New Orleans.
