Klein signed a three-year, $15 million contract with the Saints on Thursday, Mike Triplett of ESPN reports.

Klein was expected to sign with the Saints, but had to wait until the new league year began on Thursday to make the deal official. Klein backed up Luke Kuechly during his time with the Panthers and will now be looking for a larger role in New Orleans. The Saints were a middle-of-the-pack rushing defense in 2016 and will look to Klein to provide a run-stuffing threat in the middle of the defense.
