Ziggy Ansah Visiting Saints Thursday Night


The Saints are scheduled to host free agent DE Ziggy Ansah for a visit Thursday night, according to Larry Holder

Ansah met with the Bills earlier in the day, but it appears no deal was reached and he plans to meet with other prospective teams. 

The Saints just Alex Okafor to the Chiefs, so it possible they could pitch Ansah on joining their defensive group.

Ansah, 29, was taken with the No. 5 overall pick by the Lions back in 2013. He played out the final year of his four-year, $18.595 million rookie contract before the Lions picked up his fifth-year option last May.

Ansah made a base salary $12.7 million for the 2017 season before the Lions used the franchise tag on him last year that cost them around $17.5 million fully guaranteed for the 2018 season.

Ansah is once again testing the open market as an unrestricted free agent this offseason.

In 2018, Ansah appeared in seven games for the Lions and recorded 11 tackles and four sacks.

We have him featured in our Top 100 Available Free Agents list.
