New Orleans Saints undrafted rookie profile: Porter Gustin

One of the things that the New Orleans Saints are known for is having perhaps the most dominant linebacking groups in NFL history in the Dome Patrol. The intimidating foursome of Hall of Famer Rickey Jackson, should-be Hall of Famers Pat Swilling and Sam Mills, along with Vaughan Johnson terrorized NFL offenses through the mid-1980's into the 90's, and has been one of the defining marks of the New Orleans franchise. The Saints have turned out a couple of very good linebackers since the breakup of the Dome Patrol, but the unit as a whole has never matched up to their exploits.
