Despite working out multiple linebackers who have been steady starters over the past two years, the Saints are reuniting with Kiko Alonso, Sam Robinson of Pro Football Rumors reports. The well-traveled defender has not played since 2019, but Ian Rapoport of NFL Network notes the Saints are giving him another shot. It’s a one-year deal, per ESPN.com’s Katherine Terrell.

Going into what would be his age-32 season, Alonso looks to have shown enough at his Thursday workout to vie for a depth role. Once a longtime starter, Alonso has not played since suffering an ACL tear in New Orleans’ wild-card loss to Minnesota in January 2020.

New Orleans also worked out Anthony Hitchens and Jon Bostic on Thursday. Both players have been starters for the past several years. Alonso is the oldest member of the trio to participate in this audition. While the Oregon alum was with the Saints in 2019, he worked as a starter in just four of the 13 games he played with the team. He will follow former Vikings and Eagles defender Eric Wilson in being a Saints veteran linebacker addition this year.
