Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that the Saints are re-signing LB Stephone Anthony to a contract on Wednesday. According to Rapoport, Anthony, will help on special teams and previously worked with Saints special teams coordinator Darren Rizzi in Miami.
The Saints have also placed LB Kaden Elliss on injured reserve.
Anthony, 26, is a former first-round pick out of Clemson by the Saints in the 2015 NFL Draft. The Dolphins acquired him from the Saints in exchange for a fifth-round pick in 2017.
The Dolphins declined to pick up Anthony’s fifth-year option last year and he played out the final year of his four-year, $7.731 million rookie contract. He recently had brief stints with the Falcons and Jets.
In 2018, Anthony appeared in all 16 games for the Dolphins and recorded four tackles.
