Saints' A.J. Klein: Signs with Saints
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Panthers' A.J. Klein: Slated to sign with Saints
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Klein is expected to sign with the Saints on Thursday, ESPN reports.

Klein spent spent most of his four-year stint in Carolina filling a special teams role and backing up four-time Pro Bowler Luke Kuechly at middle linebacker. Klein appears to be set to fill a larger role in New Orleans, however, as the Saints have historically had issues stopping the run, and could use the linebacker's 6-1, 240 pound frame to close gaps for opposing running backs.
