LB Chris Chamberlain close to signing
 
Larry Holder ‏ @LHolderCBS

Nothing is eminent, but I'm hearing some positive momentum that #Rams LB Chris Chamberlain could sign with the #Saints.

Stay tuned.

Awesome, is the guy any good? Is he an OLB?

FinSaint 03-23-2012 09:51 AM

I thought that he was the LB most likely to sign with the Saints, because he will be the most affordable out of them and due to his relationship with Spags.

But he is an OLB, so do we see Shanle moving on?

Would make this a glorious day!!!

From all I've read he's a decent OLB who knows Spags system well, but nothing spectacular.

But I wonder, is decent an upgrade over what we have? I tend to think so.

I agree.

He has pretty good size and from what I've read he does have good movement ability on the field - he played the weak-side linebacker with the Rams/Spags if I remember correctly.

Just scowered Youtube and can find NO highlights of this guy. Is that a bad sign?

He was a 7th round draft pick, so don't expect a lot of college tape to be available for the guy, and he wasn't a star in the Rams' s system, so he probably doesn't have many die-hard fans.

Chris Chamberlain

Chamberlain played better than expected on the weakside. He graded out overall with a 3.6 mark from PFF, second only to James Laurinaitis. His numbers won't blow anyone away, but he was consistently positive against the run. In coverage, Chamberlain did well, but struggled against Vernon Davis ... as did most linebackers assigned to cover him.

You know if he can be a younger version of Shanle when he was good, it certainly wouldn't be a bad thing.
