It's just a visit but I don't know if we'd waste our time just to kick the tires. I know we bring guys in for workouts all the time but this feels a little different than just keeping our list updated.

On paper he just doesn't look like a good fit for our defense. His main problem is coverage if i'm not mistaken.

Good leader though. Sounds like another Curtis Lofton type move to me. Not bad... but not great.

Like I said a lot of experience and a good veteran in the locker room!

Same thing was said about Browner last year.

Browner could still be a good back up and a starter again if he pulled his head out of his ass and we got a defensive line. Once again a lot of experience and a good veteran to have in locker room.

Re: Saints interested in LB James Laurinaitis

Why even bring in a declining player coming off a bad season thinking he'll produce on an anemic defense? We lack team speed & Laurinitis has been poor in coverage.

You'd think the front office would try something different by now.

Re: Saints interested in LB James Laurinaitis

Perhaps, Saints FO are thinking of moving Anthony out of the middle?!?

Or are moving to the 3-4 base front?!?

Either way, is Laurinaitis even physically capable of making an impact?

Exactly. I really hope he doesn't sign here. I like the MLB we already have. They could find much better in the draft.
