The New Orleans Saints recently signed numerous free agents to their roster, including a 6-year veteran defensive lineman.


The 30-year old Williams, a first-round pick by Denver in the 2013 NFL Draft, played four years for the Broncos, before spending the 2017 campaign with the Tennessee Titans.

Last season, the 6-foot-2, 328-pound Williams played for both the Detroit Lions and Miami Dolphins, compiling 14 tackles over 14 contests.

In 89 career games, including 63 starts, Williams has accumulated 132 tackles, including 5.5 sacks.

New Orleans also added fullback Michael Burton, a 4-year veteran.

The 27-year old Burton played for the Detroit Lions for two seasons (2015-2016), before spending two seasons (2017-2018) with the Chicago Bears.

The 6-foot, 240-pound Burton has 8 career carries for 11 yards, while catching 9 passes for 53 yards and a touchdown.
