After A.J. Klein and Kiko Alonso left Thursday's game with injuries, the Saints have added a familiar face to the linebacking core.

According to Sean Fazende of FOX 8 New Orleans, Manti Te'o has signed with New Orleans.

Te'o played for the Saints in 2017 and 2018 on a 2-year deal.

In 2017, Te'o played in every game, accumulating 40 tackles.

In 2018, he was a healthy inactive for 11 games and did not receive a contract from the Saints, or any other team, last offseason.
