Agent: CFL WR Williams signs with Saints

AP - Sports

NEW ORLEANS (AP) -- Wide receiver Chris Williams, who negotiated his release from the CFL's Hamilton Tiger Cats this week, has signed a contract with the New Orleans Saints, his agent said Thursday.

Dan Vertlieb, Williams' Vancouver-based agent, told The Canadian Press that Williams is headed to New Orleans.

On Wednesday, Williams and the Ticats reached an agreement to allow CFL's top special-teams player last year to pursue opportunities in the NFL.

Contract details weren't immediately available, but the 25-year-old Williams stands to make much more than the $48,000 base salary he was scheduled to earn this season in Hamilton.

The NFL's 2013 minimum salary is $405,000.
