Heart sinking... Kasay close to signing with Saints

It shouldn't be like this... it just shouldn't. There's no way John Kasay's career should end anywhere else but Carolina, but unfortunately that just wasn't in the cards. This from Scott Fowler's twitter feed a few minutes ago

BREAKING NEWS: John Kasay is close to contract with the New Orleans Saints very soon, says my NFL source.

This really is a heart-breaking close to Kasay's career if you're a Carolina Panthers' fan. For Kasay, more power to him, if an NFL team believes he can still kick and contribute then he should absolutely still be playing in this league. There are few players with the same level of class that Kasay exhibited while in Carolina, typified by the heartfelt letter he wrote to fans following being cut by the team.

Anyone else afraid of a nightmare scenario where we're looking at Kasay wearing a different jersey hoping he'll shank a game winner? I can't even bear the thought.
