  • Falcons' Kaden Elliss: Joining Falcons on three-year deal

    Elliss agreed to a three-year contract with the Falcons on Monday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

    Elliss is scheduled to make $21.5 million over the next three years, though the deal can't be finalized until Wednesday. The 27-year-old linebacker enjoyed a breakout season with the NFC South rival Saints in 2022, racking up 78 tackles and seven sacks. Elliss had just 23 tackles and one sack over three previous seasons.

  • Saints' Kaden Elliss: Key defensive contributor in 2022

    Elliss tallied 78 tackles (43 solo), seven sacks, two passes defended and two forced fumbles over 17 games during the 2022 season.

    Elliss notched career highs across the board during his fourth season with New Orleans. The 2019 seventh-round pick was a core special-teamer over his first three years with the Saints, and he continued to primarily play in this phase until linebacker Pete Werner went down with an ankle injury Week 9. Eliss then recorded 58 tackles (33 solo) and five sacks while taking on a starting role over the final eight games of the season. He also maintained a significant role even when Werner returned for three of the final four regular-season games. As a result, the 27-year-old Elliss finished fourth on the team in tackles and second in sacks, and he will likely draw interest when he becomes an unrestricted free agent this offseason.

  • Saints' Kaden Elliss: Notches seven stops in win

    Elliss recorded seven tackles (five solo) in Saturday's 17-10 win over the Browns.

    With both of fellow linebackers Pete Werner (hamstring) and Zack Baun (ankle) unavailable in Week 16, Elliss tied for the second-most stops on the Saints behind Tyrann Mathieu's 11. The 238-pounder will likely remain one of New Orleans' key defensive contributors when the team travels to Philadelphia in Week 17.

  • Saints' Kaden Elliss: Tallies eight tackles in loss

    Elliss recorded eight tackles (three solo) in Monday's 17-16 loss to the Buccaneers.

    Elliss tied with cornerbacks Alontae Taylor and Bradley Roby for the Saints' second-most tackles behind strong safety Marcus Maye. The fourth-year linebacker has risen into an extremely prominent role since starter Pete Werner went down with an ankle injury Week 9, recording 40 tackles, 2.5 sacks and one pass defended over the last four games. Elliss played a relatively moderate role over the first eight weeks of the season, though his performance over the past month may have earned him increased playing time even if Werner manages to return following New Orleans' Week 14 bye.

  • Saints' Kaden Elliss: Leading tackler again Week 12

    Elliss logged 14 tackles (12 solo) during Sunday's 13-0 loss to the 49ers.

    Elliss recorded a game high in tackles as the Saints were shut out for the first time this season. The 27-year-old also started his third straight contest in place of Pete Werner, who has been sidelined since suffering an ankle injury Week 9 versus Baltimore. Elliss has set a new season high for tackles in each of these starts, totaling 33 tackles, 2.5 sacks and one pass defended over this span. He should continue to play a prominent role if Werner remains sidelined against the Buccaneers next Monday.

  • Saints' Kaden Elliss: Pops in second straight start

    Elliss collected 11 tackles (six solo), including 1.5 sacks, and one pass defended during Sunday's 27-20 win over the Rams.

    Elliss logged a team high in tackles while starting in place of injured linebacker Pete Werner (ankle) for the second game in a row. The 2019 seventh-round pick also increased his season sack total to 4.5, as the Saints' pass rush totaled four sacks against the Rams' depleted offensive line. Elliss has accumulated 18 tackles (nine solo), 2.5 sacks and one pass defended over the past two weeks, and his production will remain high so long as Werner stays sidelined. The 6-foot-3, 238-pounder should also have plenty of opportunities to increase his tackle numbers against the 49ers' diverse rushing scheme.

  • Saints' Kaden Elliss: Strong showing in loss

    Elliss recorded seven tackles (three solo), including one sack, and a forced fumble during Sunday's 20-10 loss to the Steelers.

    Elliss played a season-high 96 percent of New Orleans' defensive snaps with starting linebacker Pete Werner (ankle) sidelined Sunday. While his one forced fumble was ultimately recovered by the Steelers, he did log his second sack in as many weeks. Elliss should continue to see significant playing time if Werner remains out against the Rams in Week 11.
