The New Orleans Saints have decided to bring back former 2015 first-round pick Stephone Anthony according to Ian Rapoport.
A reunion I did not see coming: The #Saints are bringing back former first-round LB Stephone Anthony, source said. He’ll help on special teams, too, as he’s back with ST coordinator Darren Rizzi. They were together in Miami.

Anthony started his career with the Saints before being traded to the Dolphins. The linebacker was a key player as a rookie for the Saints, but faded in his second season before being traded. He will now rejoin his former team and his former special teams coordinator.
While he will provide depth for the linebackers, Anthony will likely most help out the Saints on special teams.
