NEW ORLEANS (WGNO) — According to a report from ESPN NFL insider Adam Schefter, 28-year-old safety P.J. Williams will remain in the New Orleans Saints defensive backfield after signing a one-year deal.

Schefter tweeted on Saturday “Saints’ safety P.J. Williams is returning to New Orleans on a one-year deal, per source. This now will be Williams’ eighth season with the Saints.”

The Saints suffered a blow earlier this week with the retirement of 34-year-old Malcolm Jenkins on Wednesday. The 13-year veteran will leave a void that the team hopes to fill with recently-signed safety Marcus Maye, who also replaces a hole left behind by the departure of Marcus Williams to the Baltimore Ravens.

Maye, 29, inked a three-year, $28.5 million deal with the team on March 15.
