The New Orleans Saints have had discussions with Kai Forbath and would like to bring the kicker back, a source told The Advocate.

Forbath, the veteran kicker who was signed midseason after the Saints cut Zach Hocker, made 9-of-13 field goals in 10 games with New Orleans.

Forbath buried two game-winning kicks for the Saints, blasting a 50-yard kick through the uprights to beat the Giants and a 30-yarder to beat Atlanta in the season finale.

But Forbath’s potential game-winner against Tennessee was blocked, one of two Forbath field goals that were blocked in New Orleans last season.

If New Orleans brings back Forbath, the Saints could still bring in a young kicker to compete with the veteran for the spot. Florida State’s Roberto Aguayo told reporters at the NFL scouting combine last week that the Saints were one of the teams looking for a kicker.
