Laurinaitis previously visited with the Saints and Falcons, which appeared to be the two teams he was considering the most.

Hmmm...let's see...

Play for the Falcons, Atlanta, Big Media Center of the South, Crazy Night Clubs, Get all kind of Preseason Props from the Talking Heads in Bristol, Play for Owner Arthur Blank...

or...

Play for the Saints, New Orleans, Great Food, Mardi Gras, Perennial Underrated Team, The Super Dome, Great Fans, Sweep the Falcons with Coach Payton who actually owns the Falcons...

Re: Saints sign James Laurinaitis

He's a good player no doubt, I'm just a little confused because he plays the same spot as Stephone Anthony....

Why draft an MLB in the first round if your just going to sign a former all pro MLB the next season?

I hope they don't try and move anthony, he really started making strides and I don't want this to turn into the whole "Martez Wilson Experiment" Where we made an MLB into a defensive end and then back to outside backer in 3 seasons.

Re: Saints sign James Laurinaitis

It seems like most people don't expect Laurinaitis to come here accepting a backup role. The early money appears to be on moving Anthony to Sam LB and letting Kikaha play DE full time.

If we brought JL in for those specific reasons, we are already in trouble .

Maybe we needed someone to come in and coach the LBs since Vitt hasn't been doing it. Lol.

This I would be ok with. Kikaha has a really good pass rush. The only problem is if we move him to DE, count on him there and a OLB gets hurt. What then? Plug in a OLB that has no business starting? Move him back and start a DE that has no business starting? Appears if this is the case they are praying for no injuries.
