ESPN’s Ed Werder reports that the New Orleans Saints “kicked the tires” on Browns cornerback Joe Haden before Tuesday’s trade deadline.
Werder said one high-level Saints source characterized the team’s interest as being mostly due diligence and cited both injury and salary issues as a factor.
Although there was speculation that either Haden or Joe Thomas could be traded, neither came to fruition.
