Alonso agreed to terms on a restructured deal with the Saints on Tuesday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Alonso's new deal will keep him in New Orleans for less than the $7.8 million he was originally slated to make in 2020. He'll likely assume a starting inside linebacker role alongside A.J. Klein. Alonso is coming off a torn ACL suffered in last season's playoffs but has made good progress in his recovery so far and could be ready by the start of the season.
