(WVUE) -

The Saints have not given up on the possibility of signing New England cornerback Malcolm Butler. According to the Associated Press, Sean Payton said Butler will visit New Orleans on Thursday.

Ian Rapaport of the NFL Network reported the Saints and Butler have already begun contract negotiations. Butler is reportedly seeking a contract that pays him in the top-ten of the cornerback market. As a restricted free agent with a first round tender, the Saints would be required to surrender their pick at 11, unless other compensation can be worked out between the Saints and Patriots.
