The New Orleans Saints are the latest to look into the potential signing of cornerback Alfonzo Dennard, reports today have revealed.

Working out

According to NFL.com, the 25-year-old is at the Saints facility today to workout for the NFC South franchise in the hopes of securing a deal.

Dennard was part of the New England Patriots roster that became Super Bowl champions in 2014 but was waived by the franchise this offseason after struggling with injuries during his time at Foxboro.

Dennard's has, at times, showcased his NFL calibre talents, his most memorable play coming in a two-interception game against Andrew Luck and the Indianapolis Colts in the 2014 playoffs. 2014 though, like his previous two years in the NFL, was marred by injury and he managed just six games for the eventual Super Bowl champs.

The cornerback has 29 appearances to his name since arriving in the NFL in 2012.

Bouncing back

Having slipped to the seventh round due to a pre-draft arrest it appeared the Patriots had got themselves a good deal.

Having failed to make the grade in New England however, and having last week been released by the Arizona Cardinals - the team who picked him up off waivers in May - Alfonzo Dennard will be desperate to impress the New Orleans Saints.

Adding depth

The New Orleans saints are clearly looking to add depth at the CB position this week, with Sean Payton revealing Alfonzo Dennard was not the only player at the team's facility today looking for a deal.

Offseason arrival Brandon Browner, and Keenan Lewis though will likely suit up as the Saints starting cornerback duo come Week One of the regular season regardless of new additions.
