Manti Te'o returns to the New Orleans Saints

Manti Te’o is back in New Orleans. On Tuesday, the Saints signed the 28-year-old linebacker, according to Sean Fazende of FOX8 (on Twitter).  Te’o wrapped up a two-year pact with the Saints last year and did not sign on with another club for 2019, until now.
