After announcing the signing of linebacker and special teamer Nate Stupor, the Saints also added James Laurinaitis to the mix. Rand Getlin broke the news on twitter:
I’m told LB James Laurinaitis has agreed to terms with the #Saints.

Personally, I don’t hate the move. The big question now is where Laurinaitis fits. Do the Saints have him compete with Anthony at MLB? Do they move Anthony to SLB or WLB? Are both playing in the middle in a 3-4 front? It should be interesting. Laurinaitis may or may not be washed up, but he’s tough, durable and smart. Perfect guy to have in the locker room for a struggling defense.
