Saints Sign LB K.C. Asiodu

In another shocking turn of events, the Saints have signed LB K.C. Asiodu. Asiodu, who spent most of last year with the St. Louis Rams, is obviously a more youthful replacement for just-released Troy Evans. The 6’2 242 pound linebacker became a member of the Rams last year as an undrafted free agent out of Central Oklahoma. He meandered between the team’s practice squad and the active roster, as well as playing a stint on the Miami Dolphins’ practice squad in between.

I’ll be the first to admit that I don’t know a whole lot about Asiodu. But what I can discern from my research is that, like Evans, he is a versatile player. Apparently, the Saints like him because he can play strong-side linebacker, but his main role will be on special teams. The complete terms of this one-year deal have not yet been disclosed.

Although he was released from the Rams because he struggled with recovery from a sports hernia, it appears that he is healthy now. Needless to say, the Saints are desperate for help on special teams coverage. Struggling horribly in that area in the first two preseason games as they did all of last year, a player who can get down the field and tackle should be a welcome addition.

It’s going to be interesting to see who gets cut next as the Saints try to get their roster down.

    Have yall seen the video for Kenny Chesney’s song “Boys of Fall?” I just watched it and its great. He’s got some clips of the Saints in it and some cool interviews from some of the great coaches. Can’t wait to get the whole album ‘Hemingway’s Whiskey’ on Sept. 28. Heres the link to the video… http://bit.ly/TheBoysofFall
