Former New Mexico State receiver/kick returner Chris Williams signed with the New Orleans Saints as a free agent.

Williams spent the past couple seasons in the Canadian Football League.  He was voted the CFL's Most Outstanding Rookie in 2011, but sat out this year because of a contract dispute with the Hamilton TigerCats.

Williams scored a team-record 17 touchdowns last year (11 receiving, five on punt returns and one on a missed field goal return) with the Hamilton Tiger-Cats.   He led the CFL that season with 78 punt returns for 1,117 yards.
