Free agent LB Michael Mauti (illness) has gained back 30 pounds since undergoing surgery to combat ulcerative colitis in November.

That puts him at 220, which is still 23 pounds below his playing weight. Mauti had a second surgery in February and will undergo a third in mid-April. After that, the 27-year-old believes he'll need about 10 weeks to get back into playing shape. The Saints have expressed interest in re-signing Mauti, who has served as a core special teamer since entering the league in 2013.

Saints LB Michael Mauti (illness, injured reserve) is undergoing surgery.

Mauti has ulcerative colitis. He'll require "significant time" to recover. A linchpin special teamer, Mauti will be a free agent in the offseason.

Saints claimed LB Michael Mauti off waivers from the Vikings.

A 2013 seventh rounder, Mauti has barely played in the regular season. The Saints will be hoping he can develop as a special teamer.

Vikings placed LB Michael Mauti on injured reserve with a knee injury, ending his season.

Mauti was the 213th overall pick in May's draft. He played just one snap on defense and racked up just two tackles on special teams. The Vikings signed OT Carter Bykowski to take Mauti's spot on the 53-man roster. Mauti needs a knee scope and should be fine for a regular offseason.
Wed, Dec 10, 2014 11:05:00 AM

Vikings agreed to terms with No. 213 overall pick LB Michael Mauti on a four-year contract.

Mauti is recovering from the second tear of his left ACL in as many years, but "absolutely" expects to be ready for training camp. He was viewed as a potential day-two pick before going down last November. Mauti is considered a dark-horse candidate for the Vikings' middle linebacker job, but will most likely be limited to special teams as a rookie if he can avoid the reserve/PUP list.

Vikings rookie ILB Michael Mauti (ACL surgeries) "absolutely" expects to be ready for camp.

"I'm sprinting. I'm doing some light agility stuff," said Mauti, who suffered three ACL tears in college. "So, it's not like I'm limping around here." Mauti's most recent tear was to his left ACL on November 17, at a time he was playing well enough some projected him as a second- or third-round pick. Mauti will be given a look, but he's a long shot to start as a rookie.

Vikings seventh-round ILB Michael Mauti (torn ACL) is expected to be ready for training camp.

"We're going to start rehabbing him, but he should be ready to go by training camp," said GM Rick Spielman. Mauti, the No. 213 overall pick, suffered three torn ACLs in his college career at Penn State. Whenever he returns to health, Mauti is expected to compete for the starting middle linebacker job.

Vikings selected Penn State ILB Michael Mauti with the No. 213 overall pick.

Mauti (6-foot-2, 243) returned from a 2011 left ACL tear to earn first-team All-Big Ten honors as a senior. He recorded 96 tackles, three interceptions, and three forced fumbles, before re-tearing the same ACL late last November. He's now suffered three ACL tears in his playing career. The Nittany Lions' middle linebacker may have to redshirt his rookie season. Though never an exceptional athlete, Mauti was Penn State's best defender when healthy. A probable early-round consideration if not for the checkered medical background, Mauti could be a contributor as soon as 2014.
