Williams dealt with a groin injury last week but was let go without an injury designation Tuesday, so he appears to have moved past the issue. He'll now attempt to find another opportunity ahead of the 2023 campaign.

Williams left Tuesday's practice early with a groin injury, Mike Triplett of NewOrleans.Football reports.
Williams signed with the Saints on Aug. 14 as a depth piece for a Saints' backfield that, at the time, was dealing with multiple injuries. He rushed for 102 yards and a touchdown on 21 carries in six games last season with the Cardinals before being placed on the team's injured reserve list in November with a hip injury. Williams is aiming to crack onto the Saints' final roster as a depth piece behind running backs Alvin Jamara, Jamaal Williams and Kendre Miller.
Williams signed a contract with the Saints on Monday, Nick Underhill of NewOrleans.Football reports.
Williams had his season end early in 2022 after suffering a hip injury while with the Cardinals. Now, he'll come to New Orleans and provide some depth to a backfield that is dealing with multiple injuries. With Alvin Kamara (suspension) set to miss the first three weeks, along with Kendre Miller (knee) and Kirk Merritt (hamstring) currently ailing, not to mention, Eno Benjamin (Achilles) already going on IR, it's been a rough camp for Saints running backs. Williams will at least provide some veteran depth during practice, while he'll aim to make the team's final roster.
