Staying in New Orleans
CBNew Orleans Saints
April 3, 2019
Williams re-signed Tuesday with the Saints on a one-year contract, Josh Katzenstein of The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.
ANALYSIS
Williams served as the Saints' nickelback for most of 2017 and 2018, though the team replaced him last offseason with Patrick Robinson, who then suffered a season-ending ankle injury Week 3. Given his struggles in coverage along with his recent drunk driving arrest, Williams isn't necessarily a lock to make the 53-man roster. He may need to serve a suspension if he does stick around.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2018
2016
2015
After two injury-plagued season, Williams was finally able to stay healthy in his third pro season, notching 47 tackles (34 solo), nine passes defensed and two interceptions across 16 games in 2017. Williams, however, is expected to start the year behind Marshawn Lattimore and Ken Crawley on the cornerback depth chart and will need to beat out fellow Florida State product Patrick Robinson for the nickel cornerback job in order to make an meaningful impact in most IDP leagues.
Williams was selected in the third round of the 2015 NFL Draft, but he missed all of last season with a torn hamstring injury he suffered during training camp. After what amounted to a redshirt season, Williams, now healthy, has drawn rave reviews this offseason and during the early portions of training camp. Delvin Breaux and Keenan Lewis will presumably be the Saints' starting cornerbacks to begin the season, but with the modern NFL offense frequently deploying three-wide receiver sets, Williams should still see plenty of playing time from the nickel cornerback position.
Drafted in the third round of the 2015 NFL Draft, Williams will compete to be a backup cornerback.
