Saints Nation: Clint Ingram Is Newest Saints Addition

It's official, Clint Ingram has signed a one year deal and is the newest member of the New Orleans Saints. He'll help fill the void left by departed linebacker Scott Fujita. Man, it really bums me out that we lost Fujita. How did we let that happen?

Anyway, Ingram will compete for a starting spot with Jo-Lonn Dunbar and Jonathan Casillas. The good news is Gregg Williams coached Ingram back in 2008 in Jacksonville, so he obviously likes him and he should be familiar with the defense. That should give him a leg up in his transition with the Saints. I expect him to compete for a starting spot, though I'm hopeful our up and coming young backers will outperform him. Either way he provides nice depth.
