Free agent cornerback Kayvon Webster will visit the Saints on Wednesday, a source tells Adam Schefter of ESPN.com (on Twitter). The 49ers and Bears also have expressed interest in Webster recently and it might not be long before he finds a new NFL home.
Webster garnered buzz early in his career as a talented cornerback with the Broncos who was buried on the depth chart behind more established names. Many expected him to break out upon signing with the Rams in 2017 and reuniting with Wade Phillips, but he didn’t do much in his injury-shortened season. In 2018, injuries hampered him yet again as he tried to reestablish himself with the Texans.
The Saints will start Marshon Lattimore and Eli Apple at the outside cornerback spots with Patrick Robinson, P.J. Williams and rookies Chauncey Gardner-Johnson and Saquan Hampton battling for the primary slot role.
