Saints add another Marcus Williams to their secondary
What's better than having one Marcus Williams on your team? Having two players named Marcus Williams! The New Orleans announced on Sunday that they've added some depth at cornerback when they signed free agent, Marcus Williams.
Williams was an undrafted free agent in 2014, signed with the New York Jets, and played in eight games that season. Over the course of the next two years he would go on to start six more games and then moved on to the Houston Texans for the majority of last season. In his career he's accounted for 114 tackles, 10 interceptions, and two forced fumbles.
The team has also added another former Jets secondary player in Robert Nelson. He's also played for the Cleveland Browns, Arizona Cardinals, and Houston Texans in his career.
In a corresponding move, the team has cut bait with struggling cornerback De'Vante Harris. He was the starting defensive back last season for the Saints, it just shows how much their secondary has evolved in a year.
