Futures deals are essentially camp invites that will give players the opportunity to compete for roster spots during offseason workouts and training camp.
Spence, 27, is a former second-round pick of the Buccaneers back in 2016. He was entering the final year of his four-year, $6.03 million contract and when the Buccaneers waived him coming out of the preseason.
Spence later caught on with Washington and eventually joined the Saints towards the end of the 2019 season. He returned to New Orleans brought last year, but was placed on the reserve/non-football injury list last May with a torn ACL.
The Saints re-signed Spence last March but cut him loose during training camp. He caught on with the Bengals on the practice squad.
In 2019, Spence appeared in seven games for Washington and recorded three tackles and one sack.
