Roundup: Saints sign CB Webster; Lions make moves

Kayvon Webster will find a chance to jumpstart his career in New Orleans.
The free agent corner is registering with the Saints, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported Monday, a source informed of this circumstance.
The Saints brought into a bevy of secondary defenders to get a workout last week before landing on Webster, who’ll have a chance to make a spot on the roster as a special teams player who can offer depth on the back end with the potential of earning a larger role if he could remain fit.
Webster also garnered interest from the Chicago Bears and San Francisco 49ers before landing in NOLA.

Webster’s livelihood has been delivered by injuries . He tore his Achilles at 2017 as a member of this L.A. Rams, his first chance as a regular starter after four seasons with the Denver Broncos. After landing in Houston last year, he played just 10 total snaps for the Texans in 2 matches because of quad accidents, which eventually sent him to IR in December.
Here are trades from Monday:
1. The Detroit Lions signed free agents offensive lineman Luke Bowanko and quarterback David Fales. In corresponding motions, the team also waived QB Connor Cook, a former Michigan State standout and 2016 Oakland Raiders draft selection, and security David Jones.
2. The Cincinnati Bengals signed free-agent OL John Jerry, who sat out the 2018 year old. The 2010 third-round pick had previous stints with the Miami Dolphins (2010-13) and, most recently, the New York Giants (2014-2017). Guard Rod Taylor was waived by the Bengals. A seventh-round draft pick by the Bengals a year ago, Taylor spent most the 2018 campaign on IR, after suffering a knee injury early in training camp.
3. The Indianapolis Colts have signed defensive tackle Caraun Reid his representative Mike McCartney announced on Twitter. Reid was drafted in the fifth round from Princeton from Detroit in 2014 and had previous stints with several teams, such as the Dallas Cowboys in 2018 where he tallied 10 tackles, 0.5 sacks and his first career forced fumble as a backup. The Colts also placed defensive end Jegs Jegede on IR.
In other Colts news, third-year tackle Antonio Garcia has been suspended four games without pay by the league for violating the NFL policy on performance-enhancing substances. Garcia was drafted by the New England Patriots in the third round of this 2017 draft but has yet to play with a regular–season snap.
4. The Green Bay Packers have officially signed the final of their 2019 draft class, inking tight ending Jace Sternberger of Texas A&M. After finishing his profession a consensus All-American with the Aggies at 2018 sternberger was drafted.
