(WVUE) -

The Saints are reportedly close to adding another linebacker. ESPN's Dan Graziano is reporting the Saints and Manti Te'o are close to a deal. Te'o spent the first four years of his career in San Diego.  He visited the Saints early in free agency and has ties to new linebackers coach, Mike Nolan who coached him with the Chargers. 

Te'o would join a crowded Saints linebacker room. The team added free agent A.J. Klein on the first day of free agency. Also on the roster are: Nate Stupar, Stephone Anthony, Dannell Ellerbe, Craig Roberston, Adam Bighill and Travis Feeney.

Te'o's 2016 season was cut short after three games. His best year as a pro came in 2015 when he finished with 83 tackles, a forced fumble and an interception.
