Saints signed MLB A.J. Klein, formerly of the Panthers, to a three-year, $15 million contract with $9.4 million guaranteed.
The deal was originally reported as four years, but the final year of the deal voids for proration purposes. Klein played extended snaps for Carolina last year after Luke Kuechly went down with a concussion. He was a liability in coverage but was passable as a run-stopper. The Saints use a 4-3 defense, so Klein won't have to adjust to a new scheme. Klein said his priority was to sign where he could start. He should have that opportunity at MIKE linebacker in New Orleans. Mar 9 - 11:46 AM
