The Saints were expecting to host free agent DT Jamal Williams for a visit and contract negotiations today.
Williams never got to New Orleans.
The Broncos offered $7 million guaranteed and $16 million over three years and Williams signed. Denver also picked up ex-Patriot and LSU product DE Jarvis Green today.
QB Drew Brees played with Williams in San Diego and publicly recommended him yesterday.
Another free agent remotely linked to the Saints, ex-Charger RB LaDainian Tomlinson is set to visit the Vikings.
