Compton played for the Redskins from 2013-17 and was a full-time starter as recently as 2016. However, his 2017 was marred by injury and he played only 79 defensive snaps for the Titans last year in his first and only season in Tennessee.

With the Saints, he may be able to provide depth, experience, and special teams help. However, he has limited time to make his case before 53-man roster cuts in early September.
