Saints considering Justin Fargas?

The New Orleans Saints may already have a plan in place to move forward without running back Mike Bell.

The veteran signed an offer sheet with the Philadelphia Eagles on Tuesday and the Super Bowl champions have six more days to decide if they want to match the contract.

In the meantime, they are exploring some alternative options that include Justin Fargas. WWL-TV in Louisiana reports that Fargas was dining with team officials in New Orleans’ Warehouse District Tuesday night, citing an anonymous source.

Fargas was let go by the Oakland Raiders after seven seasons with them.
