Kayvon Webster will find a chance to jumpstart his career in New Orleans.
The free agent corner is signing up with the Saints, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported Monday, a source informed of the situation.
The Saints brought in a bevy of secondary defenders to get a workout a week before landing Webster, who will have a chance to make a spot on the roster as a special teams player who will provide depth on the rear end with the potential of making a larger role if he can remain fit.
Webster also garnered interest from the Chicago Bears and San Francisco 49ers before landing in NOLA.
