Futures deals are essentially camp invites that will give players the opportunity to compete for roster spots during offseason workouts and training camp.

Williams-Lambert, 24, wound up signing on with the Saints as an undrafted free agent out of Ball State back in 2016. He was waived a few months later, but signed on to the Saints’ practice squad after clearing waivers.

New Orleans brought him back on a futures contract for the 2017 season. However, he was later waived with an injury settlement.

Williams-Lambert signed on with the Saskatchewan Roughriders of the CFL for the 2018 season.

In 2018, Williams-Lambert caught 62 passes for 764 yards receiving and four touchdowns over the course of 17 games.
