The Saints have agreed to sign cornerback Kayvon Webster, according to ESPN.com’s Adam Schefter (on Twitter). Exact terms of the deal are not yet known, but it’s likely a low-cost one-year contract for the 28-year-old and New Orleans.
The Saints auditioned several cornerbacks last week and apparently liked what Webster brought to the table. Barring injury to one of the team’s other corners, Webster probably won’t be in line for serious playing time. Marshon Lattimore, Eli Apple, Patrick Robinson, and P.J. Williams all rank ahead of him on the depth chart, though he could carve out a role on special teams.
Webster garnered some hype as a backup in Denver, but injuries spoiled what could have been his true coming out party with the Rams. Instead of taking off in old friend Wade Phillips‘ system, his season ended after just eleven games. Last year, he latched on with the Texans, but he was limited to just two games thanks to multiple injuries and two IR stints.
