WATCH: Kaden Elliss intercepts a pass and runs it back all the way to the house

The New Orleans Saints were very excited about linebacker Kaden Elliss last summer, and it’s easy to see why: he’s an impressive athlete. While Elliss saw his rookie year cut short by a torn ACL in Week 3’s win over the Seattle Seahawks, he worked hard to recover from surgery and showed up to training camp ready to roll.

And the plays he’s made helped convince the Saints to release veteran linebacker Nigel Bradham, a somewhat-splashy signing added just before camp kicked off. While Elliss isn’t challenging Demario Davis or Alex Anzalone for snaps with the first-team defense, he’s going to get opportunities to make an impact if he keeps it up.
