Defensive tackle Corey Wootton met with the Saints on Wednesday but did not receive a contract offer, according to a source.

The free agent spent last season with the Minnesota Vikings after spending the previous four with the Chicago Bears.

Playing in a limited role, he finished the 2014 season with 16 tackles and one sack. Wootton’s best season came in 2012 when he finished with seven sacks and 27 tackles.

The Saints have said that improving the defensive line will be a top priority this offseason.
