Saints' Jason Trusnik: Agrees to deal with New Orleans
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Trusnik signed a contract Wednesday with the Saints, Tom Pelissero of USA Today reports.

Trusnik will provide the Saints with some depth at outside linebacker, but he's expected to make his biggest impact with New Orleans' special teams units. The 32-year-old has been out of the NFL this season after appearing in eight games with the Vikings in 2015.

Panthers sign LB Jason Trusnik to one-year deal
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

The Panthers have signed linebacker Jason Trusnik to a one-year deal, the team announced.

"Jason is an experienced player who adds more competition to the linebacker position and has also been a special teams ace," coach Ron Rivera said. "I expect him to come in and be a leader. Even though he is new to us, he's got veteran savvy to him."

Trusnik made six starts while playing all 16 games with the Dolphins in 2014, racking up 48 tackles and intercepting one pass.

"First, I want to earn respect from my new teammates and coaches," Trusnik said. "It's a new team and I have to earn that. I want to continue to be the leader that I've been in the past and make plays, whether that be on special teams or on defense."

The others are all probable. They are cornerback Nolan Carroll (ankle), safety Chris Clemons (glute), linebackers Koa Misi (shoulder), Dannell Ellerbe (knee) and Jonathan Freeny (shoulder) and tackle Paul Soliai (knee).
