The New Orleans Saints have left the Seattle Seahawks as the lone National Football League team with an Alabama player.

According to Aaron Wilson, who covers the Houston Texans and the NFL, the Saints signed former Crimson Tide defensive end Damion Square on Friday. Square, a native of Houston, Texas, was a four-star recruiting in Alabama’s 2008 signing class.

He was on three BCS National Championship teams (2009, 2011, 2012) and two Southeastern Conference title teams (2009, 2012). Square was not selected through seven rounds of the 2013 NFL Draft, but he turned in a nice career with the Philadelphia Eagles (2013), Kansas City Chiefs (2014), and San Diego/Los Angeles Chargers (2014-20). He signed with the Cleveland Browns on May 4, but his contract was terminated on August 19. Square totaled 100 tackles and 5.5 sacks in his professional career.
