Linebacker Kiko Alonso looks set to join the Saints.
Alonso is one of three veteran linebackers to work out for the team on Thursday, and multiple reports indicate he will be signed to the 90-man roster.
Alonso played 13 games for the Saints in the 2019 season, so he knows the defense now led by head coach and former defensive coordinator Dennis Allen. He tore his ACL late that season and hasn’t played since the injury.
He had 31 tackles in his previous stint in New Orleans.
Alonso was a 2013 second-round pick in Buffalo and played 73 games for the Bills, Eagles and Dolphins before joining the Saints.
