The New Orleans Saints made a midseason move last year to bolster their defense by trading for linebacker Kwon Alexander. He immediately slotted in as a starter for his first seven games in New Orleans, but he tore his Achilles in Week 16 and missed the rest of the year.

Alexander was a cap casualty this offseason and his recent injury has left him with a cool market in free agency. It's no surprise that he's interested in a potential Saints reunion.

Kwon Alexander Contract

Alexander is scheduled to visit New Orleans on Tuesday, signaling that both sides are open to another potential year together.

The former fourth-round pick spent five games with the San Francisco 49ers in 2020 before being dealt to the Saints. He recorded 39 solo tackles, 4 passes defended, 3 tackles for loss and 1.0 sacks on the year.

The familiarity between both sides could motivate a deal to get done. Alexander also won't be a costly option after just being cleared to resume football activities, but he provides a veteran depth piece for this defense.

The Saints currently have +110 odds to make the playoffs this season, according to FanDuel Sportsbook.
