Number Three: Marcus Williams
Although the “Minnesota Miracle” involving safety Marcus Williams may remain prominent to fans for years to come there is more to be said about this Saints defensive back. Since entering the league in 2017, Marcus Williams has proven to be a great talent for the New Orleans Saints that may only be scratching the surface.
Over his past four seasons, Williams has shown the ability to cover the field and display the consistent safety play that the Saints have searched for in the past. In his career, Williams has hauled in 247 tackles and has become a “ballhawk” on the Saints roster with 13 interceptions.
Williams is a free agent this offseason and will be one of the highest-paid players at his position after this summer. Listed as one of the top free agents at the safety position, the New Orleans Saints will compete to retain this elite safety.
Coach Kris Richard has taught some of the best safeties in recent NFL history such as Earl Thomas and Kam Chancellor.
If Marcus Williams is a member of the Saints expect Williams to be the player that flourishes the most with his new secondary coach this upcoming season.
