The Raiders signed him to a two-year, $8 million deal back in March of last year. Las Vegas released him this past May and he caught on with the Saints. He’s been on and off of their roster. 

In 2020, Heath appeared in 12 games and recorded 33 total tackles, one tackle for loss, three interceptions, and three pass defenses.
