WHITE SULPHUR SPRINGS, W. Va. — The Saints are signing former ULL linebacker Justin Anderson, a source confirmed.

Anderson worked out for the Saints after Friday’s practice and agreed to a contract a few hours later. WWL Radio’s Kristian Garic first reported the signing.

In New Orleans, Anderson will be reunited with former ULL defensive coordinator James Willis, who now is an assistant linebackers coach for the Saints.

Saints linebackers Dannell Ellerbe (toe), Ramon Humber, and Ronald Powell are all currently fighting injuries.

Anderson spent time with the New York Giants, Minnesota Vikings, and Dallas Cowboys in various capacities.
