The Saints could lose one of their key defensive pieces to a division rival. DE Alex Okafor is making his first free-agent visit to Tampa Bay, a source confirmed (as first reported by Pewter Report) – though the Saints do remain in play to keep him. Okafor, 27, was a huge part of New Orleans' defensive resurgence when he signed a one-year “prove it” deal last year after serving primarily as a backup for four years in Arizona. He started the first 10 games of the season with 4.5 sacks and two forced fumbles before tearing his Achilles. He is expected to be fully healthy in time for training camp.
