NEW ORLEANS -- is reporting cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha was in New Orleans on Sunday meeting with the Saints.

Asomugha was released by Philadelphia earlier this month as a cap casualty. He never delivered on the promise he showed while with Oakland, where he played under current Saints defensive coordinator Rob Ryan.

The two were reportedly seen eating lunch together in Metairie Sunday afternoon.

In 2011, Asomugha very nearly signed with the Cowboys because of his relationship with Ryan before taking more money to play in Philadelphia.

New Orleans, however, is not the only team that would appear to have interest in the cornerback. He met with San Francisco 49ers officials prior to coming to the Crescent City.

Asomugha was one of the top free agents available after the 2010-2011 season
