The New Orleans Saints officially signed DB Bradley Sylve and G Andrew Tiller to futures contracts for the 2018 season on Thursday.
Futures deals are essentially camp invites that will give players the opportunity to compete for roster spots during offseason workouts and training camp.
Tiller, 28, is a former sixth-round pick of the Saints back in 2012. He lasted just over a year in New Orleans before he was waived and later signed to the Chargers’ practice squad a few weeks into the 2013 season.
Tiller spent less than a year with the Packers before he signed on to the 49ers’ practice squad during the 2014 season and has spent the past two and half years in San Francisco.
The Chiefs signed him to a contract back in May of last year but waived him as they trimmed their roster down to the 53-man limit.
In 2016, Tiller appeared in 15 games for the 49ers and was rated by Pro Football Focus as the No. 43 guard out of 72 qualifying players.
