Nick Underhill has been told that free agent DT Nick Fairley wants to continue his NFL career, despite the heart condition that led to him missing the entire 2017 season.

Underhill adds that Fairley almost certainly won’t be back with the Saints if he ends up resuming his career.

New Orleans elected to release Fairley a few weeks ago with non-football illness designation and he’s currently a street free agent.

Teams are going to have obvious questions about his health moving forward, so we’ll have to see if any team is willing to give him a look this offseason.
