Although the Saints have recently signed other linebacker help  in the form of Mike Mohamed and JoLonn Dunbar, apparently more linebacker help was needed and they have signed James Anderson.  He is a 10-year vet who began his career with the Panthers and also played for the Bears, Patriots, Cowboys, Falcons and Titans.  Anderson has flexibility to play in numerous spots.

Missing Ellerbe, Kihaha and Humber has affected the Saints.  Hopefully with the bye week coming up, the starters will be coming back and the new signees will become acclimated to the defensive scheme.
