Saints acquire LB Barrett Rudd from Seahawks for an Undisclosed Pick

The Saints signed Linebacker Barrett Rudd from Seattle. Anyone know anything about him? Might as well make one thread about all new LB signings because there will probably be a bunch.

Executive Vice President/General Manager Mickey Loomis announced that the club has acquired linebacker Barrett Ruud from the Seahawks in exchange for an undisclosed draft pick.

If their is cap room, they should look into Merriman.

Its at a point you have to look at just about anyone as far as LBers go.

He's a LB, I just remember him when we played TB and he was with them...

David Hawthorne is now with the Saints. His replacement could be Barrett Ruud. Calling this a massive downgrade is a major understatement. Ruud was one of the five worst starting linebackers in the NFL last year. He's been terrible for the past few seasons.

Rudd played MIKE for the bucs and started for 2 seasons. Mostly noted for getting run over by Ivory. In fact the only time I have seen him mentioned he is getting trucked by some RB... Crap signing, wont start but will add depth I guess. Would still like to see Merriman get a shot.

Great! The other LBs are so great at stoping the run that he can focus on other things!

Draft pick or not, Loomis and our organization responds faster than almost any team in the NFL. Kudos to the front office!!

Uh... he had a couple of solid years for the Bucs. In fact, at one point I really liked the guy. It seems he's fallen off the map quite a bit, but I doubt we gave up anything for the guy. Not a lot of risk here and there's a little upside.
