New Saints LB Manti Te'o said he'll play "wherever they need me … whatever's going to put me in position to get the running back, quarterback, receiver or whoever has the ball." The Saints are now loaded with middle linebackers with Te'o, newly-signed A.J. Klein, last year's starter Craig Robertson and former first-round pick Stephone Anthony. Te'o did say, however, that it's his goal to emerge as the signal caller from that group – something he has done "since Pop Warner." "I've always been a leader, whether it was inside or outside, I've always been a signal caller," Te'o said. "And it's not just to have on my resume, it's because I'm most comfortable when guys depend on me. To have their trust helps elevate my game. To have that responsibility brings out the best in me, and it's something I'm real comfortable with."
