The New Orleans Saints and tight end Boo Williams have agreed to a three-year contract, the team announced Thursday.
Williams would have been a restricted free agent if the contract would not have been signed.
In 2003 Williams ended with a career-high 41 receptions for 436 yards and five touchdowns.
Williams started the final six games of the 2003 season and led the team in catches with 29 for 347 yards and four touchdowns.
Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
