No Word if the Saints Will Look to Sign Smith or Brooks

The Times-Picayune says that the Saints are mum on inking either Derrick Brooks or Derek Smith:

Saints officials gave no indication whether they will sign or pass on veteran free-agent linebackers Derrick Brooks and Derek Smith, who were brought in for workouts Wednesday. Each player apparently passed inspection, but Coach Sean Payton said no decision will be made before Saturday, the day after the Saints open their exhibition schedule against the Cincinnati Bengals at the Superdome.

“Those guys are in great shape,” Payton said after the team finished its 18th practice of training camp, a two-hour exercise that was pushed indoors because of inclement weather. “We’re not going to do anything right yet. I talked to both players, and we’re going to get through this game on Friday and into the weekend and then make a decision in regards to what direction we want to head.”
