The New Orleans Saints have reportedly made a move to shore-up their linebacking corps and special teams unit, agreeing to terms with free agent, and former Seattle Seahawk, Will Herring. With the Seahawks, Herring played more of a rotational role, making just six starts since 2007 and none this past season. Herring did, however, intercept a pass in 2010, in addition to forcing a fumble with the Seahawks.
The news of Herring's signing was passed along by Brian McIntyre on Twitter Wednesday morning.
Seattle Times' Seahawks reporter Danny O'Neil confirmed the news a short time later.
Perhaps he can teach the Saints how to tackle Marshawn Lynch while he's there. No word on the terms of his deal with the Saints, other than the reported three-year length of the contract.
