Meh ...

I'll be anxious to see how Klein performs at MIKE come training camp.

Re: New Saints linebacker A.J. Klein trying to overcome language barrier in Dennis Allen's scheme

I will be shocked if he does not pick up quickly.

The number one reason
I wanted him was at MLB

the number two reason
Klein's position versatility was a necessity in Carolina, where he lined up on the strong side, or Sam linebacker, when everybody was healthy and moved into the middle, or Mike linebacker, when Luke Kuechly was on the bench the past two seasons.

Stll my "#1 Biggest Bang for the Buck" NFL FA candidate for 2017

A.J. Klein signed a 4 year, $24,000,000 contract with the New Orleans Saints, including a $4,000,000 signing bonus, $9,400,000 guaranteed, and an average annual salary of $6,000,000. In 2017, Klein will earn a base salary of $1,700,000, a signing bonus of $4,000,000 and a workout bonus of $100,000, while carrying a cap hit of $2,800,000 and a dead cap value of $9,400,000.

According to teammates and coaches his intelligence is one of his strengths.

The first thing Rivera and several players mentioned about Klein this week is his intelligence. Backup safety Colin Jones said Klein knows where he’s supposed to be against any offensive alignment.

That’s the result of Klein’s film study. Klein said he watches tape on his iPad at home but likes to stay at the stadium some nights because the game tapes are more accessible on the team’s computer system.

A different language does not equate to a more complex scheme.

Its simply a different terminology for the same things.

Exactly, and he even said it is becoming more natural all the time. I have no doubt he'll have it all as second nature by training camp. He strikes me as the sort that keeps working on his craft over the six week break instead of going to some party beach with the homies.
