New Orleans Saints sign free agent linebacker Chris Chamberlain
NFL reporter Adam Caplan is reporting that the New Orleans Saints have agreed to terms on a three-year deal with free agent linebacker Chris Chamberlain.
Chamberlain being signed so quickly doesn’t come much as a surprise since defensive coordiantor Steve Spagnuolo was his head coach when Chamberlain was with the St. Louis Rams.
Chamberalin had his best season last year with the Rams where he had 81 tackles, two sacks, one interception, and one forced fumble. He is mainly a weakside linebacker and also could be a contributor on special teams.
Despite the ravaging “pay for performance” suspensions handed to the Saints, he said he was “pumped” for his visit to New Orleans. Chamberlain just posted this statement on his Twitter account:
"(@Chambo57) Thanks to everyone in Stl for four great years! However, just joined the Who Dat Nation!!! It’s official, I’m a Saint #whodat #Saints"
With his arrival in New Orleans, Chamberlain could provide some stiff competition at his position with current weakside linebacker Scott Shanle.
