Saints add Chris Chamberlain from Rams

The New Orleans Saints have added linebacker Chris Chamberlain from the Rams.  This should be the first in a line of defensive player signings.  The Saints are in the process of protecting themselves from the upcoming round of suspensions that will be dealt out.  Many expect the NFL league office will suspend linebacker Jonathan Vilma for at least the entire 2012 season, that’s where Chamberlain comes in.

Expect the Saints to add some more depth on the defensive line and at the safety position.   There is not a lot of high end talent that New Orleans will be able to bring in, most players already agreeing to deals with other teams, and the Saints are going to be hindered by the Salary Cap.

The Saints have been a top tier team in the NFL for the past 4 seasons and were looking to continue on the trend in 2012, however the fallout of the Bounty program being run in New Orleans has devastated this team, at least for this season.  They have lost draft picks, coaching and front office members and soon up to 27 players.
