Summary

The Saints snapped up veteran linebacker James Laurinaitis in free agency to be the quarterback of their defense, taking the pressure off Stephone Anthony and - they hope - solidifying the unit. Laurinaitis' play has tailed off in the past couple of seasons, but he is more than capable of topping 80 solo tackles on a Saints defense that still has its warts. (May 22)
