Kiko Alonso has only played one year with the Saints after they acquired him at the beginning of the 2019 season. He was put on the Physically Unable to Perform list by the Saints before the season started on September 5, 2020.
Even though they are trading linebacker for a linebacker, Alonso has yet to make an appearance this year so they are really adding to the linebackers that they already have. This will move Anzalone and Elliss back a spot.
That will only add more depth to this position which will lead to the team being better. If Alex Anzalone becomes the backup to Alexander, that is a good thing in my book. The Saints’ depth here is something they have seriously lacked since 2018.
The Saints made a great decision to add Alexander before the deadline. They might not even be done yet. Make sure you tune into Who Dat Dish over the next hours to get your information and analysis on current New Orleans Saints moves.
