The legend is back.
Former Buffalo Bills linebacker Kiko Alonso is making his football return. Based on NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport, Alonso worked out with the Recent Orleans Saints on Thursday and went on to sign with the team.
Alonso, 31, last played within the league in 2019 with the Saints.
When it comes to Buffalo, Alonso has at all times lived in Bills lore.
Alonso was picked by Buffalo within the second round of the 2013 NFL draft. He only played one yr with the Bills as a rookie, but he had a powerful yr and impressed. Alonso finished second within the Defensive Player of the 12 months voting.
Nonetheless, Alonso missed his entire second yr because of injury after which was traded.
That deal fetched Buffalo All-Pro running back LeSean McCoy from the Philadelphia Eagles.
That trade went thoroughly for the Bills as Alonso went on to only play one season with the Eagles. McCoy earned Pro Bowl honors in Buffalo.
Alonso spent 2016 to 2018 with the Miami Dolphins as well.
Per Saints Wire, Alonso will battle for a depth position at linebacker. Recent Orleans recently lost out on the Kwon Alexander sweepstakes, as he signed with the Recent York Jets last week.
