Aaron Glenn's NFL career keeps on rolling. Next stop, N'awlins (http://www.neworleanssaints.com/Articles/2008/4/Saints%20Sign%20CB%20Aaron%20Glenn.aspx).


New Orleans Saints Executive Vice President/General Manager Mickey Loomis (http://www.neworleanssaints.com/Team/Staff/People/Mickey%20Loomis.aspx) announced Monday that the club has signed unrestricted free agent cornerback Aaron Glenn (http://www.neworleanssaints.com/Team/Roster/People/Aaron%20Glenn.aspx).

The veteran defensive back is familiar to the Saintsí coaching staff, having played for the Cowboys in 2005 when head coach Sean Payton (http://www.neworleanssaints.com/Team/Coaches/People/Sean%20Payton.aspx) was the assistant head coach and defensive coordinator Gary Gibbs (http://www.neworleanssaints.com/Team/Coaches/People/Gary%20Gibbs.aspx) coached the linebackers. Glenn has played in 201 career regular season games with 175 starts, including five games for Jacksonville in 2007 where he had one interception, which he returned for a touchdown.Why in the &%$@ didn't the Texans sign Glenn? The only thing I can come up with is he still has a grudge against Jon Hoke. Would have been the perfect 4th corner to go with Bennett, Reeves, and a rookie...until Dunta comes back.

Agree with you. I kind of understood the let him go if he wants especially at his cap number the year they let him go. As he comes free each time and is available for league minimum or close to it, this is somewhat absurd not to bring him in.

Good question, not sure why we wouldn't look at him. He's still got some game and we need depth.

It would have been kind of weird though to see him in a Texans uni again. He sure has a knack for staying in the Tri-state area.

If he left with a bad taste in his mouth he might not look at the Texans, especially if they weren't offering him significantly more money.

There isn't one, it's just more of a typical phrase and sounded better than bi-state.

Oh wow, if Glenn had returned to the Texans I would have had jerseys for three active players.
