Jamaal Williams lands deal with New Orleans Saints

Jamaal Williams is officially leaving the Detroit Lions. According to a report from Adam Schefter, Williams and the New Orleans Saints have agreed to a 3-year deal. Williams spent two seasons with the Lions, including the 2022 season, where he rushed for over 1,000 yards for the first time in his career while breaking Barry Sanders‘ franchise touchdown record along the way. Following the season, many believed it was just a matter of time before Williams signed a deal to stick around in Detroit, but that will obviously not be the case. UPDATE: According to Schefter, Williams’ contract with the Saints is a 3-year, $12 million deal, including $8 million in guaranteed money.
