Free Agent Ben Grubbs Visiting Saints, According To Report

The New Orleans Saints are expected to bring in guard Ben Grubbs for a visit this week, according to the New Orleans Times-Picayune. This is an interesting situation because the Saints are letting guard Carl Nicks walk in free agency. Nicks has made it clear he wants to be the highest-paid guard in the NFL, so Grubbs would likely come at a more affordable price.

The Baltimore Ravens reportedly made Grubbs an offer earlier this week but he opted to test free agency. If New Orleans or Baltimore doesn't pay him, someone else will. He's young and talented, which are valuable characteristics in NFL free agency.

Grubbs was the Ravens' first-round pick in the 2007 NFL draft. He has started all 16 games in three of his five seasons.
