Saints agree to terms on a 3-year contract with former Lions RB Jamaal Williams

Boom: the New Orleans Saints bagged maybe the best available free agent on the open market, with ESPN’s Adam Schefter reporting that the team agreed to terms on a three-year contract with former Detroit Lions running back Jamaal Williams. Williams broke out in a big way last year with 1,066 rushing yards and a league-leading 17 touchdown runs.

He’ll provide a big boost to a Saints rushing attack that struggled to get going at times in 2021, while also pairing nicely with Alvin Kamara whenever he’s available. This is a huge get for New Orleans and Dennis Allen’s vision for the team.
