Saints Nation; Saints Sign Defensive End Jimmy Wilkerson

In an effort to continue to improve their pass rush, the Saints have snatched free agent Jimmy Wilkerson away from the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Wilkerson ended last year with 6 sacks.

Per KFFL.com:

"Tue, 20 Apr 2010 08:32:26 -0400
Stephen Holder, of the St. Petersburg Times, reports via Twitter the New Orleans Saints have signed free-agent DL Jimmy Wilkerson (Buccaneers) to a one-year deal worth $2 million."

Considering the pickup of Alex Brown, this is a bit surprising. I wonder if Bobby McCray is on his way out? This also makes it more likely in my mind that the Saints will either go defensive tackle or linebacker with their first pick.
