NEW ORLEANS, LA (WVUE) -

Over two weeks after visiting New Orleans, linebacker James Laurinaitis is signing with the Saints, according to an NFL Network report.

The Ohio State product has spent all seven years with the St. Louis Rams before being cut in February. The 29-year-old has never missed a game, logging 852 tackles, 10 interceptions and 16.5 sacks.

With Wednesday's signing of Nathan Stupar, the Saints now have eight linebackers on the active roster.
