Saints Worked Out Four Players Including Jerel Worthy & C.J. Wilson

According to Howard Balzer, the New Orleans Saints brought in four defensive linemen for tryouts this week including Jeremy Liggins, DeShawn Williams, Jerel Worthy and C.J. Wilson.

Of this group, the Saints signed Liggins to their practice squad.

Worthy, 27, is a former second-round pick of the Packers back in 2012. However, he lasted just two years in Green Bay and sustained a serious knee. Upon returning, the Packers traded him to the Patriots for a conditional draft pick, but he was, unfortunately, cut loose at the start of the 2014 season.

Worthy had had brief stints with the Chiefs and Lions before signing on with the Bills during the 2015 season. Buffalo elected to cut Worthy loose a few months ago.

In 2017, Worthy has appeared in five games for the Bills and recorded five tackles and no sacks.

Wilson, 30, is a former seventh-round pick of the Packers back in 2010. Wilson played out his rookie contract with Green Bay before signing on with the Raiders as an unrestricted free agent back in 2014.

Since then, Wilson has played for the Lions and Saints before catching on with the Bears during the 2016 season. Chicago re-signed Wilson to a one-year, $980,000 contract last year only to release him as the start of the regular season.

In 2016, Wilson appeared in six games and recorded 13 tackles and a sack.
