New Orleans Saints sign former CFL player Chris Williams: report

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; Sean Payton is keeping a tight lip on his injuries, WTH? this is out of the blue, im hoping whoever scouted him is just seeing we can place him somewhere and nothing is seriously wrong....

Moore maybe hurt but we have Toon and Tanner.. Or maybe to prevent more sproles fumbles.

I'd sure like to see Sproles NOT returning punts.

I hope you were joking.

Would it be the single fumble he has this year?

Or is it the zero he had in '12?

Maybe it's the zero he had in '11.

As a Canadian and an avid CFL fan, I can tell you that this guy has some serious talent. I agree with most of your assessments that he'll be used primarily as a returner here, but could see him getting some offensive snaps eventually. Had a bit of an attitude problem up north (thought he was too good for the league), so hopefully that doesn't end up being a problem here.

Do you think Payton and Brees would allow that to happen?

Or maybe he has crazy talent that Payton and Loomis couldn't pass up.

Super fast, like Michael Lewis fast. I think he will be used immediately in the return game. I said this at the beginning of the season we really needed a dedicated returner. Funny thing is we got him the day the CFL cut him loose to play in the NFL so they must have been watching his situation for a while. Pretty good hands as well.
