--Unrestricted free agent cornerback Juran Bolden visited the Saints on Monday and was hoping to receive an offer from the club, agent Jeff Guerriero.

Bolden, who played for the Atlanta Falcons last season, was arrested on Oct. 11 and indicted Feb. 20 in Atlanta on charges of driving a stolen car and marijuana possession.

He is facing a felony count of theft by receiving stolen property for driving the sport utility vehicle with a license plate that did not match the car. Police also found less than an ounce of marijuana in the vehicle.

Guerriero is hopeful the charges will be dropped and said three teams have made offers to Bolden and five others have called to express interest.

"We're at the point now where we're talking about adding depth at good value. The other things we really would like to do, we can do in the draft." -- Saints GM Mickey Loomis on what his team has accomplished in the first 10 days of free agency.
