Newly-signed MLB James Laurinaitis is expected to make the on-field defensive calls for the Saints this season.
Laurinaitis' ability to "quarterback" a defense is a primary reason the Saints signed him. Perhaps a veteran making the calls instead of sophomore Stephone Anthony will help keep New Orleans' undisciplined defense more on task, but Laurinaitis has become a declining liability in the run game. Anthony will switch to the strong side with Laurinaitis occupying the middle. Apr 9 - 9:45 AM
