NFL Rumors: New Orleans Saints Linked To 3 Linebackers

The New Orleans Saints are on the hunt for a new linebacker, as they are auditioning Jon Bostic, Anthony Hitchens, and Kiko Alonso.

Bostic was limited to four games this past season with Washington. Yet, he was effective while on the field, as he had 22 combined tackles. He also comes with 106 games of NFL experience, so that should help his case.

Hitchens just completed a four-year stint with the Kansas City Chiefs in 2021. In 15 games on the year, he had 80 combined tackles. Like Bostic, he is a grizzled veteran, but he also has a Super Bowl ring on his resume.

Alonso is a very intriguing name to see getting a workout. He last played in an NFL game with the Saints back in 2019. His past connection with the Saints could give him a slight edge, but time will tell on that front.
