New Orleans Saints sign linebacker Mike Mohamed, according to source

The New Orleans Saints have signed veteran linebacker Mike Mohamed, a league source told NOLA.com | The Times-Picayune.

Mohamed, 27, spent two full seasons with the Houston Texans before being released last month.

Mohamed expressed frustration after being placed on the injured reserve earlier this year. The Texans ultimately agreed to release him with an injury settlement that would allow him to sign with another team.

Mohamed was listed at 6-foot-3 and 238 pounds with Houston. He wore No. 98 at Saints practice on Wednesday.

Houston fans were pissed when they placed him on IR because of a calf strain, and they ain't real happy about losing him after the injury settlement.

Texans broker three-week injury settlement with Mike Mohamed - Ultimate Texans

From 5 weeks ago...
“I just want to play football this year,” Mohamed said. “I’m almost ready to go.”

Also,,HA HA HA...

The Saints just signed one of the best coverage linebackers in the NFL out from under Houston’s nose. Wonderful.


I wish I could accurately describe my anger when Rick Smith lets one of the best young players on this team go for absolutely no reason. I wish that Texans fans did not have to put up with incompetency within the highest levels of management of their favorite football team. I wish there was something – anything* – that could be done to make this series of events even remotely okay…but there isn’t. New Orleans just got a good football player for nothing, and all Houston gets is the opportunity to go against him for themselves on November 29th when the Saints come marching into town.

Sigh…

Re: New Orleans Saints sign linebacker Mike Mohamed, according to source

From what I'm reading, he covers TE's very well.

He's kind of a big safety or smallish quick LB. Take your pick.

We just signed a pretty damn good football player.

I'm curious, he intended to re-sign with Houston, and Houston wanted him back, so what happened?

Think he hates Houston and just wanted out. I also think he can't play for a while, something like weeks...???

“The rules state that when you execute an injury settlement, you’re ineligible to bring the guy back or not able to bring him back six weeks, plus whatever you settle for. So, if we settle with him for say, two weeks, then the earliest he could return is eight weeks from now.”

But New Orleans didn't settle with him, Houston did.

So we can play him immediately if I'm reading it right.
