The Saints missed their opportunity to pluck a player away from the Falcons.
Despite reportedly having interest in Sean Weatherspoon, the linebacker has agreed to sign with the Arizona Cardinals, according to Yahoo.
The one-year deal is reportedly for “just south of $4 million.”
Weatherspoon did not play last season due to an Achilles injury. The former first-round pick was limited to seven games in 2013.
It was reported earlier Sunday that New Orleans had interest in acquiring Weatherspoon. He will not be eligible to officially sign with the team until free agency opens Tuesday afternoon.
