NEW ORLEANS -- The New Orleans Saints have acquired Seattle linebacker Barrett Ruud for an undisclosed pick, the team announced Monday.

Ruud, 29, had 57 tackles and an interception last season for the Titans.

The acquisition comes after the Saints were hit with injuries to linebackers Curtis Lofton and David Hawthorne.

Ramon Humber is also set to miss time at the start of the season because of his three-game suspension.
