Saints' James Laurinaitis: Seven tackles, plays every snap
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Laurinaitis made seven tackles (three solo) and played all 73 defensive snaps in the Saints' season opener against the Raiders, reports the New Orleans Times-Picayune.

Laurinaitis, who signed with the Saints this offseason, started at middle linebacker in Week 1, pushing last year's rookie starter Stephone Anthony to outside linebacker. Laurinaitis averaged nearly 130 tackles per year during his first four seasons in the league, and though his numbers have slipped some over the last few years, he still managed 109 tackles each of the last two season. Entering his eighth season, the former Ohio State Buckeye has never missed a game in his career and should continue to be a solid source of tackles at the heart of the New Orleans defense.

Saints' James Laurinaitis: Signs with Saints
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

James Laurinaitis has agreed to a deal with the New Orleans 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 | RotoWire

James 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 | RotoWire

James 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 | RotoWire

St. Louis Rams linebacker James Laurinaitis hyperextended his elbow Sunday against the Cleveland 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.
