Saints Place LB Kiko Alonso & DB DB Johnson Bademosi On PUP List

The New Orleans Saints have officially placed LB Kiko Alonso and DB Johnson Bademosi on the active/physically unable to perform list.

Alonso is coming off a torn ACL sustained back in January. 

Alonso, 29, is a former second-round pick of the Bills back in 2013. The Bills traded to the Eagles in return for RB LeSean McCoy back in 2015.

From there, Alonso was traded to the Dolphins along with Byron Maxwell back in 2016 in return for a first-round pick. Miami later traded him to the Saints for OLB Vince Biegel at the start of the 2019 season. 

Alonso is entering the final year of his four-year, $28.91 million contract and was set to make a base salary of $6.375 million in 2020. 

He agreed to a restructured contract in March that will pay him a $1.7 million base salary and $1.45 million roster bonus that is fully guaranteed on the fifth day of the league year. He also gets $4.7 million in incentives that is dependent on playing time and being active for 10 or more games.

In 2019, Alonso appeared in 13 games for the Saints and recorded 31 tackles, no sacks or interceptions and one pass defense.
