Saints Add Cornerback Demetri Goodson to Roster
The New Orleans Saints haven't had the defense we all envisioned coming into 2018, especially with how this unit played last year and the additions it made this off-season. The secondary has been a bit of an issue, specifically the number two cornerback position opposite of Marshon Lattimore. Ken Crawley hasn't been as effective as we saw last year and when P.J. Williams has played, he hasn't been great.
However, on Thursday the team announced that they will be adding a veteran cornerback to the roster while cutting a defensive tackle:
Goodson was drafted in the 6th round by the Green Bay Packers in the 2014 NFL Draft. He played with the Packers from 2014-2016 and in that time span he played in 26 games, recorded 18 tackles, and defended two passes. He suffered a pretty bad knee injury during the 2016 season while on special teams and had been trying to work his way back with the Packers until they cut him just before the start of this season.
As for defensive tackle Jay Bromley, he had played in just one game this season, week three against the Atlanta Falcons and recorded three tackles.
