New New Orleans Saints defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo has already been putting his stamp on the team - as part of the scouting department. The Saints agreed to a three-year contract Friday with weakside linebacker Chris Chamberlain, who played under Spagnuolo with the St. Louis Rams for the past three years. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Chamberlain, 26, had the best season of his four-year career in 2012, starting 13 games with 82 tackles, two sacks, one interception and one forced fumble.

"I'm extremely excited to not only work with (Spagnuolo) but to join up with a team that's a proven winner with great coaches, great players and a great fan base," Chamberlain said. "I'm thrilled to join the team and happy to be a part of the success. I hope we can keep the ball rolling."

Chamberlain also didn't see any drawbacks with the Saints, despite the scars and looming penalties stemming from the NFL's bounty investigation.

"You know, it's unfortunate and it's a tough deal," Chamberlain said. "But I know the people of New Orleans have been through a lot more adversity than this. And just from talking to people around here, I can tell they're going to use this as a rallying point, and it will bring the team that much tighter together, make them hungry. We'll almost use it as fuel."
I like this kid already!

Forget 09 form! Get us back to the 91 form! I don’t an “opportunistic” defense,I want a defense that makes its own opportunities!

Well, at least we are addressing our weaknesses on defense. Maybe now we could sign another DT or two.

I'm guessing DT will be further addressed during the draft?

We must be cutting it close with the cap space, but yet I said that 3 signings ago...

We can exceed the cap right now, we just have to get back under it by a certain date.

EDIT: Nope, the deadline has passed, March 13.
