Saints Hosting LB Kwon Alexander For Visit

According to Adam Schefter, the Saints are hosting LB Kwon Alexander for a visit. 

Kwon Alexander

The veteran spent part of this past season in New Orleans after being traded by the 49ers. He was released earlier this offseason in a salary cap-saving move. 

However, it appears a reunion might be on the table. Schefter notes there are other teams interested in signing Alexander, who is recovered from a torn Achilles suffered late last season. 

Alexander, 26, is a former fourth-round pick of the Buccaneers back in 2015. He played out the final year of his four-year, $2,758,320 contract before agreeing to a four-year contract worth $54 million with the 49ers in 2019. 

He was traded to the Saints midseason in 2020 for LB Kiko Alonso and a conditional fifth-round pick. He tore his Achilles late in the season and was released back in March. 

In 2020, Alexander appeared in 11 games for the 49ers and Saints, recording 54 tackles, one sack, two forced fumbles, and four pass deflections.
