Saints Sign Former Rams LB James Laurinaitis

In what is a bit of a puzzling signing, the New Orleans Saints just agreed to terms with free agent linebacker James Laurinaitis. The former Rams middle linebacker comes to the Saints off a subpar season, hoping to revive his career. Good or foolish move?

The New Orleans Saints have reportedly agreed to terms with free agent middle linebacker James Laurinanitis.

the move was first reported by Rand Getlin

It was later confirmed by Adam Schefter

Laurinaitis who played middle linebacker for the Rams doesn't really seem to be a good fit for the Saints, since the team just drafted its apparent MLB of the future in Stephone Anthony. The size of Laurinaitis' contract could shed more light on whether he is coming to New Orleans to be a backup, although that is unlikely.

This is a bit of a puzzling move that is sure to make Saints fans debate the merits of the signing.
