There were times when New Orleans Saints inside linebacker Curtis Lofton seemed to be all over the place during Thursday's OTA practices.

Depending on the package, he and Jonathan Vilma were lined up as traditional inside linebackers in a 3-4 but there were times when they were times when they lined up on the outside and on the first play from scrimmage Lofton looked like he was back at his traditional middle linebacker as he came busting through the lines of scrimmage for a two-handed sack on Drew Brees.

Amazingly, Lofton sees very little difference in his role now as an inside linebacker and what he was asked to do as the Saints middle linebacker in the old 4-3 scheme.

"Defensively my role is going to be the same year in and year out, make tackles, get to the quarterback or intercept the ball," Lofton said. "It's not really that much difference."
