While it still remains relatively early in the process, the New Orleans Saints haven't undergone in any significant contract talks with potential free agent left tackle Jermon Bushrod, the two-time Pro Bowler said Monday afternoon.

Bushrod added, though, he expects talks to heat up soon and maybe as early as this week. "It's about to get interesting," Bushrod said.

Bushrod said he's heard the report of how the Saints don't plan on using the franchise tag on Bushrod, who General Manager Mickey Loomis said earlier this offseason is the Saints' top free-agent priority. Bushrod understands that while the possible $9.7 million price tag for an offensive lineman under the franchise tag would be a "blessing," Bushrod covets a long-term deal specifically with the Saints.
