We knew that free-agent cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha was due to meet with his former Oakland Raiders defensive coordinator Rob Ryan in New Orleans on Sunday. What we didn't know was that Saints general manager Mickey Loomis and head coach Sean Payton would join the welcoming party before jetting off to the NFL Annual Meeting in Phoenix.

Loomis told The Times-Picayune on Monday morning that both sides "hit it off" during Asomugha's free-agent visit to New Orleans.
Loomis didn't reveal any specifics on contract talks, but he maintains that Asomugha can still play at an elite level despite his disappointing two-year stint on the Philadelphia Eagles.
"We're always looking for good players to improve our team," Loomis said, "and we think Nnamdi would be a great fit for our defense and our team."
Although the visit was a positive one, no signing appears to be imminent. The Saints are waiting on Asomugha to decide where he wants to play.
