The New Orleans Saints are finalizing a two-year deal with defensive end Tanoh Kpassagnon, multiple outlets reported Monday.

Kpassagnon played in 61 games (24 starts) in four seasons with the Kansas City Chiefs, recording seven sacks and 18 quarterback hits. He added 75 tackles, including 12 for loss.

The Saints drafted Kpassagnon in the second round of the 2017 draft out of Villanova.

Kpassagnon, 26, helps remake a Saints’ defensive line that lost Trey Hendrickson, Sheldon Rankins and Malcom Brown.
