Saints Bringing In DE Jason Hatcher For A Visit


Kristian Garic of reports that the Saints are hosting free agent DE Jason Hatcher for a visit on Tuesday night.

This is Hatcher’s first reported interest since he was released by the Redskins close to a week ago. 

It’s worth mentioning that signing Hatcher  to a contract wouldn’t factor into a team’s 2017 compensatory picks.

Hatcher, 33, signed a four-year, $27.5 million contract that included $10.5 million guaranteed with the Redskins back in 2013. However, he was released in a move that freed up $4.2 million in cap space for Washington.

In 2015, Hatcher appeared in 15 games and recorded 20 tackles, two sacks, a forced fumble and a pass defense. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 55 interior defensive lineman out of 123 qualifying players.

We have him featured in our Best Available Free Agents list.
