Delhomme schedules Friday-Saturday visit with Saints

Free-agent QB Jake Delhomme has planned a visit with the Saints on Friday and Saturday, according to a team source.

Delhomme, who was released by the Panthers last week and was meeting with the Browns on Thursday, is a Louisiana native, and began his career with the Saints in 1998. He spent five seasons in New Orleans, but he played in just two games before leaving for Carolina.

The Saints are high on young project Chase Daniel, but they haven’t attempted to re-sign veteran No. 2 QB Mark Brunell, according to sources. Delhomme clearly would be behind starter Drew Brees, but has said he’s averse to being a No. 2 QB (he was willing to back up young and unproven Matt Moore had he stayed in Carolina, though).

The Browns’ starting job is wide open. The team acquired Seneca Wallace, who knows Mike Holmgren’s system well, in a trade with the Seahawks on Monday. Attempts to shop Brady Quinn haven’t been fruitful. Browns officials figure a trade of Quinn is unlikely.
