New Orleans Saints Sign Linebacker

The New Orleans Saints have signed Kiko Alonso to a one-year contract.

Alonso was one of a handful of linebackers who recently worked out for the Saints. It's clear that the veteran impressed the team, as he has now earned himself his deal. Assuming he gets into action, this will be the first time he has played in the NFL since 2019. He is also a familiar face to the organization, as he spent that campaign with New Orleans. 

In 86 career games, Alonso has 588 combined tackles, 10 interceptions, and 3.0 sacks. It will be intriguing to see how much these stats change in 2022.
