New Orleans Saints General Manager Mickey Loomis said Monday morning that both sides "hit it off" during free-agent cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha's visit this past weekend in New Orleans.

Loomis also said he and Coach Sean Payton met with Asomugha in New Orleans before the pair headed to the league owners meetings at the Arizona Biltmore Hotel, which officially began Monday morning.

The Saints' general manager wouldn't give any sort of specifics on a possible contract offer from the Saints to Asomugha, but Loomis said the team is waiting on Asomugha to make a decision on where he wants to play next season.

Loomis said he feels like Asomugha, 32, can still play at an elite level despite the way Asomugha's tenure in Philadelphia ended. Asomugha became one of the NFL's elite cover cornerbacks while in Oakland where he played under current Saints defensive coordinator Rob Ryan.

"We're always looking for good players to improve our team and we think Nnamdi would be a great fit for our defense and our team," Loomis said.

Loomis also confirmed the obvious that the Saints were in the market for a cornerback like Asomugha even though the Saints just signed former Steelers cornerback Keenan Lewis to five-year contract worth a maximum of $26.3 million. Lewis' 2013 salary-cap figure is manageable enough (about $2.2 million) where the Saints feel like they can make a run at Asomugha.
