New Orleans Saints re-sign LB Ramon Humber to two-year deal


The New Orleans Saints have re-signed linebacker Ramon Humber to a new two-year deal, according to the team.

The special teams captain has also filled in as a solid backup in the Black and Gold’s linebacking corps for five years now.  With the release of Curtis Lofton, it looks as if Humber is the guy to absorb the starting role opposite David Hawthorne, for now — the Saints are not finished making moves just yet.

Roman Humber went undrafted and debuted with the Indianapolis Colts in 2009, where he was an AFC Champion, but of course lost to the Saints in the Super Bowl that following February.

Sean Payton and company are very high on him, especially after 2014.  He started six games last year and racked up a career-high 50 tackles, one sack and a pass defended.

Over his five-year span in the Big Easy, Humber has accumulated 113 total tackles, 2.5 sacks and three pass breakups as a backup and special teams connoisseur.  He brings a solid veteran presence to a team that needs leadership.  Or course, the acquisition of CB Brandon Browner will also assist in that.
