The Saints are loading up on linebackers.

According to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network, Chargers free agent Manti Te’o is visiting the Saints tonight and tomorrow.

Te’o entered the league to great fanfare because of his odd off-field story (#fakedeadgirlfriend), but has settled in to become a solid inside linebacker on run downs.

The Saints also signed Panthers linebacker A.J. Klein today, and are working on a possible deal for Patriots cornerback Malcom Butler in addition to keeping defensive tackle Nick Fairley.

    The guy is invisible, what a horrible draft pick.

    Good!
    He never panned out for the Bolts. Better to cut him.

    In before some 4 year old joke about his “girlfriend” people that use that joke are not funny.. they don’t realize it but they are just recycling the same of garbage.. same goes for butt fumble jokes..

    Solid pickup for the Saints if this happens.

    Whoever signs Teo better get the Whirlpool ready.

    He’s a good linebacker and did well in San Diego. Problem, The Chargers have many very good linebackers and he’s probably the 4th best on the Bolts. Te’o won’t break the bank, but he’s above average and a good leader.

    I don’t understand the purpose of having Klein, Te’o and Craig Robertson all on the team? They all play inside! Although Robertson is an all around LB

    He would be an upgrade for “Joe’s” Raiders

    He’s going to need a person from the team to let him know that hot chick he met on Bourbon St. is a guy. Seriously.

    He is decent, but injuries really derailed his NFL career so far, but when on the field he shown he can play some.
