Former Eagles LB Jones Says He’ll Sign With the Saints

The New Orleans Saints appear close to getting more defensive help, as former Eagles LB Dhani Jones says that he intends to sign with the team.  Jones was a starter for the Eagles last season, but was wavied by the club after the draft.  Jones had played four seasons with the Eagles after playing the first three seasons of his career with the New York Giants.  Last season he played in all 16 games, recording 76 tackles, 0.5 sacks, and five passes defensed.

The 29-year-old gave the news while speaking on the NFL Network. The Saints have yet to have any comment on the possible deal with Jones. The linebacker who is listed at 6-foot-1, 240 pounds had his best season back in 2003, when he led the Giants with a career high of 120 tackles.  The current listed starters for the Saints at linebacker include Mark Simoneau, Scott Shanle, and Scott Fujita.
