Not unexpected news...but still encouraging to read! The article also mentions that the Saints likely will not retain Simoneau:
--JOB INTERVIEW?: Two Ohio State defenders, linebacker James Laurainitis and cornerback Malcom Jenkins, are possible top-10 draft choices in April's NFL draft. The two Buckeyes are also players who the New Orleans Saints have quietly begun to research deeply. New Orleans, which completed a disappointing 7-9 season with back-to-back losses to the Philadelphia Eagles and Chicago Bears, will pick 10th in the draft, so Laurainitis and Jenkins could have been auditioning in their future professional home Monday night.
...At linebacker, only outside linebacker Scott Fujita's job is safe. Mark Simoneau is a free agent and likely won't be retained, and the Saints are not married to Brian Simmons or Scott Shanle.
