  • Saints' James Laurinaitis: Signs with Saints
    By RotoWire Staff

    Laurinaitis has agreed to a deal with the Saints, Rand Getlin of NFL.com reports. Laurinaitis recorded at least 100 tackles in three of his first four seasons, but he hasn't managed above 85 since 2013, and he set a career low with 60 tackles in 16 starts in 2015 for the Rams. He's not the dynamic linebacker he was when he came into the league, but the Saints have been weak at the position in recent years and Laurinaitis will likely get a chance to start.

  • James Laurinaitis: Set to visit with Falcons
    By RotoWire Staff

    Laurinaitis is slated to visit with the Falcons on Monday, the New Orleans Times-Picayune reports. Laurinaitis, who was recently let go by the Rams, has also visited the Saints, so it doesn't look like it will be too long before the durable linebacker, who didn't miss a start in seven seasons with St. Louis, catches on with a new team. This past season, Laurinaitis racked up 109 tackles for the second year in a row.

  • James Laurinaitis: Contract terminated by Rams
    By RotoWire Staff

    Laurinaitis was released by the Rams on Friday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. Laurinaitis experienced a drop in production over the past three seasons, and the Rams appear ready to move on from many of their veterans, cutting three players Friday. The move will save the team some extra money, while the veteran middle linebacker will now pursue other opportunities. Laurinaitis is a poster boy of durability, playing every game over his seven NFL seasons, and he hasn't recorded less than 100 tackles in a single campaign thus far. While the Rams may be done with him, there will likely be multiple teams interested in his services.

  • Rams LB James Laurinaitis injures elbow Sunday
    By RotoWire Staff

    Rams linebacker James Laurinaitis hyperextended his elbow Sunday against the Browns and is expected to have an MRI on Monday, per Rand Getlin of the NFL Network. Laurinaitis managed to play through discomfort and finished with eight tackle. While that production suggests his elbow didn't impede him much, the results of the MRI should help sort out his future availability.
