According to several sources, we've got him.

"The New Orleans Saints have added some needed depth at middle linebacker, snatching a player away from a division rival in the process. Curtis Lofton will be making an inter-division move, going from the Atlanta Falcons to the Saints. New Orleans signed him to a five-year contract on Saturday."

From WalterFootball:


Curtis Lofton, ILB, Falcons. Age: 26.
Curtis Lofton is a Pro Bowl-caliber linebacker. Re-signing him is Atlanta's No. 1 priority this offseason because he's the soul of the defense.
ooops! lol
