Saints placed OLB Chris Chamberlain (knee) on injured reserve, ending his season.

Chamberlain tore his left ACL during the second preseason game. A 13-game starter for the Rams in 2012, he was expected to help a thin Saints' defense that got even thinner this month due to injuries. Chamberlain should be back in 2014 at his $1.05 million base salary.

Saints OLB Chris Chamberlain tore his ACL in Friday's loss to the Jaguars, and is done for the season.

Chamberlain was in the mix to begin the year as New Orleans' starting strong-side linebacker. The Saints will now likely turn to some combination of 2011 starter Scott Shanle and David Hawthorne. A four-year veteran, Chamberlain started 13 games for the Rams last season, notching 81 tackles and two sacks. Still only 26, he should be back in 2013.

Chris Chamberlain and Scott Shanle are rotating first-team reps at strong-side linebacker in Saints OTAs.

On Tuesday, Shanle was the SAM backer in the morning practice, and Chamberlain ran with the starters in the afternoon session. Chamberlain is a good bet to win out because he knows DC Steve Spagnuolo's scheme the best, and is nearly six years younger than Shanle. Shanle's roster spot may hang in the balance.

Saints agreed to terms with OLB Chris Chamberlain on a three-year contract.

He's reunited with defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo, under whom Chamberlain spent the last three seasons. The 26-year-old started 13-of-16 games in 2011, racking up 81 tackles, two sacks, one forced fumble, and an interception. Look for Chamberlain to compete with Scott Shanle to start at weak-side 'backer.

The Rams have "been in contract discussions" with free agents WLB Chris Chamberlain, LG Jacob Bell, and P Donnie Jones.

The Rams are "early in talks" with Chamberlain, who was one of the team's better run defenders as a first-year starter. The coaching staff also believes Bell showed improved blocking ability later in the season. Jones was considered for the franchise tag at one point.
