New Orleans Saints are adding depth to their secondary. According to several reports, including the one from ESPN‘s Adam Schefter, Saints have signed veteran cornerback free agent Kayvon Webster to a deal.
Saints worked out several corners, including Coty Sensabaugh and Prince Charles Iworah, in the past week and eventually decided to give Webster a chance. NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reports that the 28-year-old will get a chance to grab a roster spot as part of the special team while also having a chance to earn a bigger role on the team.
Webster previously drew interest from several NFL teams including Chicago Bears and San Francisco 49ers, but New Orleans acted swiftly, and the player decided that the Saints give him the best chance to succeed.
Kayvon Webster started his NFL career with the Denver Broncos, who took him in the third round of 2013 NFL Draft. He spent four years in Denver, helping the franchise to win a Super Bowl, before embarking on stints with Los Angeles Rams and Houston Texans. Webster’s time with Rams and Texans didn’t turn out for the best as he struggled with injuries which limited him to only 13 games in the past two years.
Webster’s career stats include 122 tackles, 21 pass deflections, two interceptions, and one forced fumble.
