Re: Saints sign James Laurinaitis

This better not make or break our season next year. i was hoping he would be backup depth behind Allerbe in case he gets hurt again.

I remember Laurinitis had 18 tackles vs LSU one year. On our LB core he will help. Definetely. Good signing.

Still not crazy about this signing but at least we didn't give him a boatload of money.
