Joe Vitt Talks About Barrett Ruud, Gives an Injury Update
 
1 Attachment(s)
T Jermon Bushrod remembers seeing Ruud often when the former Nebraska linebacker played for NFC South rival Tampa Bay. Bushrod may not have been assigned to block Ruud very often, but his skills on the field left an impression with the Pro Bowl tackle.

“I definitely know the type of player he is,” said Bushrod. “He is a good, hard-nosed and quick player. We are definitely excited about him being a part of this organization.”

Assistant Head Coach/Linebackers Coach Joe Vitt cited that Ruud has played at a high level in his time in the NFL including experience on some of the top defenses in the league.


Scott Shanle, a college teammate of Ruud at Nebraska in 2002, said he is a “heck of a football player” and has “great instincts.”

Saints Linebackers Excited About Ruud Joining the Squad

Did the familiarity factor with Ruud since he played against you for five years in the NFC South with Tampa Bay play a role in trading for him?

“He is a guy that I personally worked out when he was in college. I think he has a real good feel for the game. He has played at a high level in this league. He has played on some of the top defenses in this league. He’s 29 years old, so he still has a lot of football ahead of him. We will introduce him to our system and see where he can get to by this weekend.”

I like knowing that we have a couple guys on our squad that have a serious chip on their shoulder regarding division opponents.

Barrett Ruud did some great things in Tampa Bay, and while I'm not saying that he should've gotten all the money he wanted, those Sucs sure didn't seem comfortable rewarding their leading tackler for three straight years. Almost identical story w Lofton and the 'Clowns. Gonna be some great football to watch when the day comes
