Saints waive UDFA DBs Trill Williams, Eric Burrell with failed physical designations

The New Orleans Saints waived undrafted free agent signees Trill Williams and Eric Burrell with failed physical designations, the team announced Friday.

Williams, a cornerback out of Syracuse, opted out midway through the 2020 season due to an ankle injury, but it's not known if that's what prompted the failed physical. In college, he tallied four interceptions, 10 pass breakups and three forced fumbles in three seasons.

Burrell, a safety from Wisconsin, sustained an ankle injury during the 2020 season, but finished the season with 23 tackles, two tackles for loss and an interception. It's not known if his previous injury is connected to the failed physical.


Not much of a thrill, I guess!

Wow, both players had great film; guess we'll start ringing up the veterans...

Laughed when CBS Sports suggested the Saints will need to trade Patrick Robinson being we had Paulson Adebo now...

Damn Trill. Didn't even last through pre season?

I'll have to find another dark horse candidate.

Perhaps that was the "red flag" that I said might have existed with him.

Trill should be back. We have open roster spots and no money to fill them with veteran players.

Couple of thoughts...

First, not all contracts count against the salary cap, just the top 51...

Second, though admittedly lesser without Brees, this roster is still stocked with only a few holes, we're just looking for best available to push, improve our roster...
