Saints Sign RB Kerwynn Williams, Waive/Injured RB Matthew Dayes


The New Orleans Saints have signed veteran RB Kerwynn Williams to a contract and waived RB Matthew Dayes with an injury designation, according to Field Yates.

Should Dayes clear waivers tomorrow, he would revert to the Saints’ injured serve list.

Williams, 27, is a former seventh-round pick of the Colts back in 2013. He lasted just a few months in Indianapolis before signing on to the Chargers’ practice squad.

The Cardinals would later sign him to their own practice squad and he spent four years in Arizona. He had brief stints with the Chiefs and Lions before the Buccaneers signed Williams to a contract back in May. He was released soon after. 

In 2017, Williams appeared in all 16 games for the Cardinals and rushed for 426 yards on 120 carries (3.6 YPC) to go along with 10 receptions for 93 yards receiving and one touchdown. He also contributed 326 kick return yards and 137 punt return yards.
