Saints Sign Nate Bussey; 7th Round Pick

That was quick!

The Saints have signed their other 7th round pick, Nate Bussey. This news also comes straight from the Saints organization:

New Orleans Saints Executive Vice President/General Manager Mickey Loomis announced today that the club has agreed to terms with rookie LB

Nate Bussey,  the Saints’ second selection in the seventh round of 2011 NFL Draft (243rd overall). The Saints obtained the pick as a compensatory draft pick in 2011.

The 6-2, 220-pound Bussey joins Martez Wilson as the second Illini linebacker selected by the Saints in the 2011 NFL Draft. He moved into the starting lineup midway through his junior year and excelled as a senior, when he finished with 83 tackles and tied for the Big Ten Conference lead with three fumble recoveries. He posted 156 stops (96 solo), 1.5 sacks, one interception, five pass defenses, one forced fumble, one fumble recovery and one blocked punt in four years, starting the final 18 games of his career.

They're coming quick now. As I said before, don't expect this to be over. The Saints still have four 2011 NFL Draft picks left to sign.
