Kayvon Webster will get a chance to jumpstart his career in New Orleans.
The free agent corner is currently registering up with the Saints, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported Monday, per a source advised of this circumstance.
The Saints brought into a bevy of secondary defenders for a work out a week before landing on Webster, who will have a chance to make a place on the roster as a special teams player who can provide depth on the rear end with the potential of earning a bigger role if he could stay healthy.
Webster also gained attention from the Chicago Bears and San Francisco 49ers before landing in NOLA.
