Alonso last played for the New Orleans Saints in 2019, and head coach Dennis Allen brought him back this offseason hoping to add some depth on defense.
“We have some familiarity with the player, he did a nice job on his workout,” Allen said after practice on Friday. “He was in shape, looked good. And when he’s been healthy, he’s been a productive player in our league. And so, that was kind of what drew us to him.”
Fans had reactions to Alonso’s brief return to the Saints.
